Pale Ember is the new track and video from Canadian country collective Hot Mondy. Speaking of broken love, it takes classic country themes and recreates them with a fresh voice.
By Graeme Smith
There’s such poignancy in Pale Ember I felt I had to share it. It’s a tale often told in country, but its lyrics stick with you, full of imagery and confession. It’s delivered through haunted vocals and subtle harmonies that add texture just at the right moments. Both the track and video are beautifully produced, with the latter taking the form of a dance routine that spells out the pain and joy of love.
Pale Ember is taken from Hot Mondy’s forthcoming debut self-titled EP. You can check out the video below.
