Folk duo Mandolin Orange have just unveiled their new track, “The Wolves,” the third single off their forthcoming album, Tides of A Teardrop, due out Feb. 1st.
The North Carolina act, consisting of singer-songwriter Andrew Marlin and multi-instrumentalist Emily Frantz, have built a steadily growing fanbase with a sound that radiates a mysterious warmth. Based on the three singles released off the new album, Tides of A Teardrop will be the duo’s fullest, richest, and most intimate effort yet.
Written mostly by Marlin, the new album confronts a defining loss head-on: Marlin’s mother, who died of complications from surgery when he was 18. Marlin said “I’ve been holding on to the grief for a long time. In some ways I associated the grief and the loss with remembering my mom. I feel like I’ve mourned long enough. I’m ready to bring forth some happier memories now, to just remember her as a living being.”
Touring in support of their new album, Mandolin Orange will be stopping through Missoula for a headlining concert on March 12, 2019. Details here.
