The previous singles from Cinder Well's upcoming album have moved slightly away from the doom folk of 2020's No Summer, Amelia Baker's solo project is right back there with her latest. "A Scorched Land" is a stark, more traditional folk song written from the perspective of a blackbird watching the massive changes going on in our world currently. It's a bleak song, but it kind of has to be given the subject matter. However, part of Baker's talent is taking a song and subject matter that is horrifically bleak and making it an engaging listen. "A Scorched Land" isn't the song you're going to put on for a sing-a-long during a family road trip this summer, but it's the kind of art you're going to go back to repeatedly.
You can watch the video for "A Scorched Earth" below. Cadence is due out April 21 on Free Dirt Records, which can be pre-ordered here. For more on Cinder Well, check out the artist's website.
