Showing off their acoustic side, The History Of Gunpowder will be dropping their single Moonshiner on the 20th of October 2023. Recorded through their seven-day residency at the Weird Church in Cumberland BC, Moonshiner is a part of live recordings that shows The History Of Gunpowder‘s character and sound experimentation. Let me tell you more about it.
The History Of Gunpowder softly opened Moonshiner with dreamy arpeggios and a soothing guitar melody, building up to a powerful verse with super expressive vocals. It embarks on a very smooth progression with floating guitars and vocal harmonies, streaming together until they’re joined by some perfect slide guitars. Moonshiner moves forward steadily towards a bigger sound, with added layers of cellos and violins feeding the song’s emotional side as the vocals escalate dramatically, taking the song’s dynamics to the next level. Moonshiner has an expressive neat production that makes its complex, multi-layered sound easily heard and fully digested by the listeners, helping their fluid writing style hit its touching spot.
Moonshiner is an atmospheric emotional journey by The History Of Gunpowder, showing their musicianship and writing skills as they cleverly steered such a fluid structure towards their desired sound with the perfect arrangement. Looking forward to more from The History Of Gunpowder, keep on rocking guys. Cheers!
