LA alt/indie-folk trio Wax Owls is ready to let the world in to thier world with the reelase of their debut single, ‘Set It Free’. The guitar playing is what caught my eye. I love the drums too! The vocals are beautiful and everything about this song is perfect!
Vocalist Gerry Hirschfeld says on the track, “I wrote the first draft of this song while in the process of moving from Chicago back to Los Angeles, my hometown. I was feeling nostalgic for the time I spent there, but was very ready to move back to the west coast since my depression hit a peak (or low point depending on how you look at it) while in Chicago. Once back in LA, a filmmaker friend, Jenny Lester, reached out saying that she needed a song for a key scene in her movie where the main character makes a difficult decision to move back to New York and to testify in court against her abuser. Jenny agreed that the nostalgic yet hopeful feel of ‘Set It Free’ fit the scene nicely, so I quickly recorded the song the very next weekend.”
I am so excited for this bands journey. Just check it out and share your feedback below.
