The Wild Feathers, "Big Sky"
Proudly wearing their country-rock influences on their flannel sleeves, the Wild Feathers sing the praises of rolling blacktop and unbroken horizons on "Big Sky," the first single from the band's forthcoming LP. The group's triple-layered harmonies nod to the past, calling to mind everything from the Eagles' pre-Joe Walsh work to Alabama's Mountain Music. The presentation, though, is more modernized, with producer Jay Joyce drawing a line between the sounds that inspire the Wild Feathers and the community that nurtures them. R.C.
