We've been waiting impatiently for an official song from Wyn & the White Light for what feels like forever at this point, but our lack of patience has finally paid off with the band's debut single. "How the West Was Won" starts off in a very Wyn Doran way with the line "There's a heartbeat in the floorboard," and then slowly takes off into a beautiful and engaging folk-pop/alt-rock song. For a song by Doran, it's shockingly uplifting (if you're new to her music, there is a typical melancholia with most of her songs). There might be more than a little darkness in the song, but the chorus nearly eradicates that. And then there's the screaming. It's almost like the kind of screaming you'd hear standing outside of a haunted house, but it adds to the song perfectly. Wyn & the White Light had us highly anticipating new music, and now we're more than intrigued to hear more!
