"Music is becoming our tool...not just for aural pleasure, not just for hobby-but now as a means to connect with something beyond ourselves. It is taking its own personality, carrying us all along on the journey down the damp and strange alley ways and cryptic coded pathways... to poetic observations, social change, lyrical nonsense, political rage, symphonic coercing, ferocious bantering, bicycles and train tracks, primal will, fresh air intoxicants, harmony and alliteration, noise and something sweeter than I can ever touch. -post-apocalyptic folk fusion soul mending...perhaps?"
Scale Down, Rising Appalachia''s second album, rides on the groove heavy rhythms of the drum while weaving in an array of instruments such as the banjo, fiddle, trumpet, harmonica, and plenty of piercing vocal harmonies. This album takes the Appalachian old-time heritage of sisters Leah and Chloe and thrusts it full swing into contemporary musical influences, often times with vibrant spoken word poetry and jazz riffs over an eerie banjo tune. With 6 brand new original songs, Rising Appalachia has sculpted a melodic balance between lyrical imagery, rustic instrumentation, and ''crepuscular indie-rock''.
Prepare yourselves: The future is looking big for these ladies...
