Up until now, we've only heard one intimate, delicate track from Sarah Vitort and Scott Gilmore (also of Just People). Recording under the moniker of Fox and Bones, the aptly titled "Warm" (watch them perform it live at The Hallowed Halls below) is a soft, beautiful, harmony-rich salvo from their debut effort.
Well, the time is nigh for the couple and songwriting team to share a little bit more from this upcoming five-song, self-titled EP, which is due out on August 18 and will be celebrated with a show at the White Eagle Saloon.
"Gravity" is our next love song and it's countrified, in the best possible way. Tinged with a musical sadness (thanks to the lap steel provided by Wil Kinky and Yoko Silk on cello), the lyrics share deep thoughts while discovering essential connections with another and the universe.
"This particular track was penned by Sarah Vitort and was originally meant to be a solo tune," Gilmore tell Vortex. "She hadn't played it for anyone until a late-night music session where she asked for a little advice on changing the chord structure. When I first heard it, I immediately loved it and asked if this could be a Fox and Bones song. We went into the studio two days later and recorded it."
That studio was once again The Hallowed Halls, where Justin Phelps recorded and mixed it, followed by mastering at Cloud City Sound. The cut also features Todd Gee on bass and percussion by Alex Greene.
