UNDER A HEAVY SKY
Their recent release UNDER A HEAVY SKY embodies The Long War’s sonic exploration and highlights their unique propensity to experiment with instruments, effects while striving to create a “whole” album from beginning to end. It’s undeniably cinematic sound is what draws the imagination in and keeps it there until the final note is played. The record is a testament to collaboration and a statement of what is possible when one of Jarrett’s songs reaches the imagination of the rest of this band. From their inception in 2016 to now, the band continues to push the boundaries of what is possible when all five members step into the studio. Known not only for utilizing four part harmonies, it is the powerful song writing, honest lyrics and unique storytelling that burn into memory. With lasting hooks and melodies, The Long War continues to carve out a corner in Canada's music scene and their new album UNDER A HEAVY SKY is just that - an album. From front to back, it stands out not only by virtue of its catchy, interesting focus tracks - but it lives wholly as one. It belongs together and feels welcome in a time where one yearns for stories of togetherness and experiences to be told, and shared fully.
