Family Band's music is already intimate and isolated. They record hushed, dark folk from a cabin they built themselves in the middle of nowhere. What this is though, is even more personal. It's a demo from their upcoming EP Cold Songs and, in this form, is just Kim Krans singing and playing guitar alone with a bunch of night air and wilderness. We can only assume that the final version will be built out with guitar from Krans' husband Jonny Ollsin and maybe some drums as well. So take this not as a demo, but as a completely different song. Something to get you stoked for the EP, sure, but also something stark and lonely that stands entirely on its own.
