New Music: Ross Newhouse – Dagger Earrings

Ross Newhouse is an American indie folk artist who Jane first discovered for us last month. He’s back on the blog with new music already. His latest is called Dagger Earrings.

By Graeme Smith

The dagger earrings about which the track is written hang from the ears of the old love and act as just one of the small details that brings Ross’s heartbroken story to life. It’s not a tale of lamenting a lost love though; it’s about looking back and realising some people you’re better off without.

Ross takes inspiration for his music from Novo Amor and Bon Iver and Dagger Earrings has a similar lush instrumentals arrangement to the music those acts create. As the track progresses, the instrumentals layer up and finally reach a dramatic climax.

If you’re feeling heartbroken today, give Dagger Earrings a spin. Check it out below.
