The word "haunting" gets thrown around a lot with music. It's the kind of description I try to avoid using, but sometimes it just perfectly fits. The latest song from Lenore., "Ether's Arms," is exactly the right time. "Ether's Arms" just feels dark. While their sound is rooted in the same world of the current crop of female roots duos like First Aid Kit and The Secret Sisters, Lenore. just veer off in their own almost gothic direction. It's almost like the mainstream cousin of bands like Rasputina or Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys. Plus, it's all packaged in this lush, incredibly well produced and orchestrated package you don't normally get with bands this slightly left of center. You can listen to "Ether's Arms" below. Lenore.'s self titled debut album will be released on September 15, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Lenore., check out their website.
