What people think about us is none of our business. True freedom begins when we decide not to worry about impressing others and give ourselves permission to just be. Nashville-based band The Brook & The Bluff sing of this longing to be careless, or maybe carefree, in the midst of self-inflicted rigidity in their beautiful new single “Hallways,” from their forthcoming album First Place, out October 25th.

Comprised of Joseph Settine (lead vocals/keys/guitar), Alec Bolton (guitar/vocals), John Canada (drums/vocals), and Fred Lankford (bass/vocals), The Brook & The Bluff was established in Birmingham, Alabama, and the foursome has been recording and touring since 2016. Originally an acoustic duo, The Brook & The Bluff expanded their sound and their lineup, planting their flag firmly in the indie rock realm. In “Hallways,” the band returns to an acoustic, stripped-down performance style as their velvety harmonies seamlessly connect, creating a soothing, sun-drenched sound reminiscent of bands like Fleet Foxes and Local Natives. This feat is also accomplished in their non-acoustic recordings but here it’s amplified against the simplicity of the instrumentation and arrangement. These golden voices were meant to make music together.

Let your hair down, run freely through our hallways, and enjoy the new track and video from The Brook & The Bluff:
