Haley Bonar returned to NYC this past week for the first time in over 11 months. Last time I saw her I was instantly swept off my feet and had my ears tickled by the sounds her gorgeous voice. With a new album in tow, Haley and her band thrilled an outstandingly hushed crowd at Club Midway with a set consisting of mostly new material.
The highlights for me were "Captain Captain", "Hawaii", "Us", and "Car Wreck".
Lure the Fox will be officially released November 21st by Afternoon Records. There are some excellent folkin' good songs on it. My personal favorite is the track "Us".
Peep the track here:
Haley's honey vocals are mesmerizing and her hauntingly poetic songwriting is way above par. I am not really sure why she has not garnered more press and even more surprised that the blog crowd has not embraced her.
