Vena Portae released their debut single, 'Summer Kills', late last week and now the multi-national alt-folk band, fronted by Australian singer/songwriter Emily Barker, have teamed up with us here at The Ruckus to share a little more from their self-titled debut as well as a pretty special remix.
Released on August 18th, Vena Portae's full-length paints a beautiful soundscape from start to finish. Elements of traditional folk and country are blended with contemporary pop and soft rock; the result of which is a record that feels incredibly unique - a modern take on a vintage sound.
It's also an incredibly deep record with incredible scope. From the upbeat, banjo-driven, 'Foal' to the wonderfully atmospheric 'Transatlantic', each track plays out like a self-contained story within the album's overall arc and the sense of sense of place that this helps to create is astounding.
Below you'll find four brand new tracks from the band as well as a remix of 'Summer Kills' by Peter Moren (of Peter Bjorn and John) and I'm sure you'll adore them as much as we do.
