Cursed Arrows – Near Death Daydream – Audio

The Canadian alt-folk trio Cursed Arrows release the LP Rebirth on the 10th of August.

Those who know the band may be scratching their heads wondering about this trio mentioned being more au fait with the duo – of Jackie and Ryan Stanley. Scott Gray has more recently joined them as a full-time fixture. Equally they will find the roughly thirty nine minutes, ten tracks, of Rebirth (available on bandcamp) of different flavour as Cursed Arrows reveal a more intimate and self-examining exposé in a mesmerising thread of songs than their more familiar forthright rock derived compositions.

This is most certainly an album that needs to be heard in its entirety to fully appreciate its stunning tender beauty and I would suggest, both those who know the band and those who don’t, to add the album to the playlist ‘moments of self-reflection’ on its release.

At present, I am only given the option of sharing a particular song – the opener Near Death Dayream – which although not, in my view the highlight of the LP as it is not of the central tenet of the release – does extract a sense of the songs to follow.
