Floods and plagues, ghosts and slaughter: woe to those who populate the songs of Yarrow. A gentle summer breeze swings the gallows ropes, flowers bloom callously on lovers’ graves. These anthems are definitely not from Eden.

The Deep Dark Woods’ newest album was borne in a fever – scarlet fever, to be medically specific. A disease of the last century is a fitting backdrop for songs that dig bare handed into the loam to unearth the corpses of old English folk and country blues. In Yarrow, the Deep Dark Woods are reimagined by leadman Ryan Boldt, and accompanied by the same band that crafted prairie psychedelics and a “loose grungy folk sound” (Paste) for flannelites. For nearly ten years they developed an international following with particular success in the Americana realm, nominated alongside Alabama Shakes and Dawes for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2012 Americana Music Awards.

Now wrest out of the woods, their outlook is decidedly more macabre, tapping into a rich vein of gothic surrealism that aligns with some of the great murder balladeers of our time. With Appalachian soil under his fingernails, Boldt writes in a deep tradition of bleak and forlorn storytelling, drawing lines from Ireland to Tennessee, the Oxford Girl to Folsom Prison.

In Yarrow, there’s a juicy unease to frontman Boldt’s presence, as if a new door has opened to let loose the weirdness. In place of the freewheelin’ jammy vibe there’s a darker, stranger tenor that sides with those modern mystics whose music exists in the creepier, freakier corners of existence.

The Deep Dark Woods’, Yarrow, will be released on Six Shooter Records on October 27, 2017.

"Meet The a pretty fantastic collection of indie folk music, experimental dream, and lyrical poetry. Some of the songs sound like poetry sung across guitar, recalling Nick Drake or Tim Buckley. It is a lovely listen for a mellow mood...The entire album is worth your time, especially if this kind of beauty is your jam, but if it's not, try it out: You might be surprised how well this goes down and gets down to soothing your soul almost immediately."
-Phoenix New Times

"I have always liked your voice. You've got so much warmth in it. Your songs literally write meet the sun across them. It is the sort of music you would listen to in a car on a roadtrip when you have got the feeling of makes you dream of a different time. It is basically music that conveys a life that I have to dream of at the moment, but can't have. To the visuals, it shows the literal sun and it shows you (well you represent the sun as well)" ~ Esther Riess, Groovy Soul, Hamburg Germany

"Listening to your music felt like laying in a meadow" -audience member from the Void

"I love the caressing melody and feel. It's so warm and as I'm writing this I just realized that, it makes me feel like how I do when I close my eyes and let my heart take in the warm sunlight..I was thinking really deeply about the soul I feel in your music" ~Vincent Virovac
