HAUNT THE WOODS – SINGLE REVIEW

Haunt The Woods – Beautiful Catastrophe 
Haunt The Woods - Beautiful Catastrophe


Release Date: 31st January 2017

Cornish quartet Haunt The Woods has been on my radar for quite some time now but I’ve never managed to make the time to hear their music, which is a huge shame. ‘Beautiful Catastrophe’ is the lead track on a forthcoming EP and it is, well, beautiful without a hint of catastrophe. The soft, country-esque guitars build until the song establishes a steady rhythm and by the 3 minute mark we’re in a full blown indie romp that the likes of Mumford & Sons or Brother & Bones would be proud to add their blood, sweat and tears to. But there’s something more here, something on another level that makes this stand out like a shining beacon of hope. If you strip the urban vibe out of Elbows music and put Jeff Buckley on vocals then you’re getting close but that wouldn’t quite cover the tightness and the fraternity that you can hear coursing through each chord, each beat and each powerfully delivered vocal line. Simply superb.
