Laura Veirs has been edging away from her typical folk/alt-country sound to something into a more rock or punk sound, but her latest single defies all of those genres. "Eucalyptus" drops most instrumentation in favor of electronic sounding beats with occasional guitar and what sounds like synths. Veirs's vocals are the main focus, with the beats far in the back of her singing. It's an oddly hypnotic sound that shows Veirs branching way out of her typical comfort zone. It may be an odd choice for a single, but it's going to have you even more intrigued in her upcoming album.
