Unwind to Elwood Myre's debut album

Elwood Myre happy

Elwood Myre is a young singer songwriter duo from the central coast of New South Wales and have recently released their self-titled debut album. The soft and airy folk sound is great to listen and unwind with and delve into a relaxed state of mind.

Elwood Myre

Relax to the serene harmonies of Elwood. Their self-titled debut shows off their passion and impressive acoustic skill.

The impassioned vocals are great to tune into while driving along, whether it be the highway on a long drive or sitting in the sunshine. This album has the ability to take you to a new place and is a great compilation of songs when needing to step away from some of the stresses of daily life. The music exudes a sense of serenity yet is lively and uplifting. Elwood Myre’s live performances are passionate and expressive. Though this dynamic duo may be seemingly new to the music scene they are here to create a lasting impression with melodic music and tender sounds.

California is full of expression and emotion. This is not your typical love song about a connection between two beings but how there can be such devoted love for a place. Elwood Myre sings about California being a destination that is purely on his mind, yet there is still a long journey to be taken before being with his love California. This song may be soft and serene but does not lack passion. The vocals are not only expressive but also melodic. The beginning of the song sets the scene with a soft introduction from the guitars but then quickly transitions into an expressive yet light song from the lyrics and vocals ending the song.

Inspired by southern American soulful folk music, Elwood Myre’s Western Eagle gives a sense of relaxation. Western Eagle is first song on the album and really shows the strong synergy they have with music. The use of only two guitars and vocals shows purely how talented and passionate Elwood Myre are. This song is perfect to listen to while unwinding. The hazy sound has been perfected by Elwood Myre and shows a distinct vocal skill and sound that is soon to be distinctly recognised.

You’re a Child, Babe is composed of soft and humble sounds. Pulling you into a world of relaxation and the humbling beats fall to the past and history of being a child. In a way this song brings reminiscence to those who are listening. A bittersweet memory of childhood thoughts and the opinions of others is conveyed. The soft and raspy vocals show the strong emotion and connect with the two guitars that create a darker sounding song compared to the rest of the songs on the album.

When listening to Elwood Myre you will be sure to feel their passion as they create a surreal atmosphere with their serene yet chaotic music.
