Anne Malin - "Child"

Photo by Rachel Winslow
Gothic country duo Anne Lamin recently moved to Nashville after some time in Indiana. They had planned to record their next album at The Bomb Shelter with a collection of Nashville musicians, but then the pandemic hit. Instead, they recorded their new album at home. One of the songs they recorded ("Child"), has one of the more interesting takes on country we've heard in a while. It's an upbeat, twangy country song that stops just shy of being foot-stomping. But, there's also some elements of modern mainstream Americana present. And of course, being that this is Anne Malin, "Child" has some incredibly dark undertones. (Gothic country and all...) Plus, the song ends in a dream pop like drone. Somehow, this all works together to craft a beautiful take on one of the oldest forms of American music.

You can listen to "Child" below. Waiting Song, the new album from Anne Malin, will be out October 2. You can pre-order a copy of the album via Bandcamp. For more on Anne Malin, check out the artist's website.
