Very Secretary

Standing In The Shade

Mud

Violin drawn across cleanly picked guitars amidst the occasional delicate, tender background of percussion, bass and other sounds. Less odd approaches it seems this time around, and a smoother overall finish to the whole sound. Everything blends together very nicely with soft vocals and quiet ambiance. A more subtle interplay of notes.
