Bodie by Sun-Pinned Leaves: Review
Sun-Pinned Leaves has blessed country fans with their latest 2022 album release “Altered States” which is their fifth album. After the opening of happy, country tunes and hum-along vocals played on “Voyage of the Mayflower”, the second track “Bodie” sounds like a mellowed-down beauty with the perfect blend of Americana and fast-paced folk creation.
When the UK artist Christopher Brown collaborated with his incredibly talented pal, the multi-instrumentalist Neil Faulkner to create this, they channeled their imaginative love for a leftabout town called Bodie into it. The track is timed as the second shortest in the entire album. However, don’t let it fool you because it is a mashup of Christopher’s amazing vocal devotion embedded with many layered harmonies in its backing vocals and a brilliant country-esque solo by Faulkner in between. The song is calming to the ears, perfect for unwinding with a cold beer after a long day, watching the sunset from your porch.
There’s a storytelling borrowed from an American country club in its lyrics, and a whiff of Texan energy within its guitar riffs. The overall musical tone gives off an incredible synergy between Christopher’s vivid lyrics and Neil’s consistent and outstanding play. It kind of takes you back to 1970s, when this mighty duo met and discovered their passion for writing and creating music. If you’re on a search for new songs to add to your Sunday morning chill or road trip playlist, Bodie by Sun-Pinned Leaves is a guaranteed and exceptional upbeat choice.
