David and Meredith Metcalf, husband and wife that are also known as Bodies of Water, make a richly sophisticated and classic brand of folk-infused pop colored with bursts of 60’s influence, brass, strings, well-positioned twangs of electric guitar, and the couple’s own endearing vocal harmonies.
After a couple years of hiatus, BoW came back with a third album, Twist Again, released last summer via their own label, Thousand Tongues Records. An overall restrained album, one standout track that captured me right from the start was “Like A Stranger.” The entire track is a controlled affair, with brooding baritones, vocal unison and galloping musical instrumentation.
“Like A Stranger” is a valiant song that coherently incorporates solid elements of upbeat rock, jazz and folk with vibrant choruses. Surprisingly enough, all this genre differentiation works perfectly together, making this track a very pleasant listen.
