‘Fresh Ground’ is taken from Sal’s debut EP ‘Still Life’ which was released back in December. It’s a sorrowful slice of indie folk rock that has a touch of Americana about it. Sharon Van Etten is mentioned in the press release as a similar kind of artist and you could definitely see Van Etten on stage at a music festival playing this song as the summer sun begins to set.
Despite have melancholic overtones there is a lot of beauty in the track, none more so than from Sal’s vocal performance. There is a reassuring warmth to her voice that soothes along with the music, making ‘Fresh Ground’ a gem of a song.
Take a listen, you won’t be disappointed.
