‘Angel’ is the third and final track on Hearth’s debut self-titled EP. It’s a gutsy rendition from the Brooklyn based band, enveloped in vocals interstitial and moments of emotions, pang-ed into slices of harmony and unavoidable inner acceptance.
“Melanie wrote the song very quickly, in one sitting, when reflecting on past relationships and noticing her own patterns,” said Hearth. “This song is inspired by the storytelling of traditional folk music and exploring different stages of relationships through 3 different characters – the gambler, the angel, and the lover.
When Sara and Melanie started working on the song it was a big “wow” moment. Sara’s vocals made the story truly come to life and everything just fell into place. It was one of the first songs Hearth performed together.
To produce the track they collaborated with Joe Martinez (of Martinez & Guthrie) and Riverland Collective, pulling in the many talented musicians who are a part of the community in order to add in some really cool instruments like cello and mandolin.
Hearth is Melanie Rose Wiggins and Sara Jess Horton.
