Yarn are a North Carolina based Americana band who were originally New York residents. Their album is entitled ‘This Is The Year’ as it follows an extended period of self-reflection and the loss of a long standing band member. They are now a four piece led by Christiana’s distinctive vocals.
Their album ‘This Is The Year’ really caught our attention last year. The band described it perfectly as “a seamless blend of vibrant, inspired, back porch melodies and narrative, descriptive lyrics that detail the challenges faced when one’s life is jolted off its bearings”.
The opener ‘Carolina Heart’ is a absolute gem. It has a very sweet, almost South African folk quality. It’s very reminiscent of the vibe that Paul Simon created on the ‘Graceland’ project and specifically his ‘Hearts and Bones’ record.
