Heart continues to ride strong since their reformation, and on new track “Corduroy Road,” the Wilson sisters slither with suspicious intent. Over quiet, clicking percussion and lurching acoustic chords, Ann Wilson’s voice creeps over the song’s shadowy terrain. Strings swoop in and grace the track with grave touches before the song bursts into a swirling, consuming vortex of violins, drums and wails. The title may sound quaint, but “Corduroy Road” is not a calm place.
“Corduroy Road” is on Heart’s upcoming album, Fanatic, out October 2nd.
