Alt-Country songstress Caroline Reese has returned with a new EP, Two Horses. The four songs reflect a traveling theme, every one saturated with Reese's country/folk vocals and lush instruments.
"(I'm Not Selling) The Telecaster" kicks off the EP and sounds autobiographical in nature. Reese made the move from Pennsylvania to Montana and channels the hardships of relocating in this bouncy number.
The melancholy filled title cut delves into a past relationship, driven by metaphors and Reese's powerhouse vocals. Meanwhile, "Ease My Mind" touches on the history of the Centralia, PA ghost town before seamlessly transitioning into the singer's past ramblings. It's the standout track, buoyed by Reese's fabulous storytelling and the fine guitar licks.
Closing out the EP is "Nicotine," a youthful nod to the past. The pedal steel wraps around the nostalgic lyrics "...I just thought thought 10 years would be long enough...But now I'm right back where you left me...left me..." leaving the listener revelling in the storyline.
With this EP, Reese has captured the ears of new listeners and no doubt, leaves them wanting more from this Pennsylvania native. Two Horses is out September 8.
