Marley Hale - "Drunk On You"

If you're wondering what Americana from Brooklyn would sound like, allow us to introduce you to Marley Hale. Her latest song, "Drunk On You," is a modern torch ballad with some of the most laid back slide guitar ever recorded. The song is rooted in old timey country, but with a modern sensibility. It doesn't sound like a throwback, but has the same spirit as classic country. Not many vintage country songs start off with the line "If whiskey were a woman I'd fuck her," just to show what kind of country ballad you're getting into here. "Drunk On You" is the type of song that makes you immediately want to hear more from an artist. Luckily we won't have to wait too much longer to hear more from Marley Hale.

Marley Hale says of her latest single:

“When I first wrote ‘Drunk On You,’ I played it alone, even when performing with the band. It was one of the first songs I wrote after getting sober, and the first to really address my sobriety. In those first months after quitting, everything felt new––every emotion was stronger than I’d ever remembered. ‘Drunk On You’ was my attempt to grapple with it, and accept where I was in my journey. Even now, playing the song with a band, I feel everything I did when I first wrote it.”

You can listen to "Drunk On You" below. By My Own Ways is due out July 26. For more on Marley Hale, check out the artist's website.
