Discovery: Kentucky Divide

Whippoorwill is the latest release from Kentucky Divide, an American folk band with elements of Americana and country also present in their music.

By Jane Howkins

It’s a very haunting sounding track, with something of an ethereal feel to it. The main instrumentation comes from a beautiful guitar melody and I liked the driving, country feel of the song which comes from the slow rhythm. The vocals are very pretty sounding and the vocal harmonies are amazing – Whippoorwill is one of my favourite songs of the year so far, so check it out below!
