Buried Beds’ “Steady Hand” selected as NPR’s Song of The Day
We love it when the locals get national attention as is the case today with the band Buried Beds. Their song “Steady Hand” has been selected by NPR Music as their “Song Of The Day.” You can listen to the song here. Here’s what writer Stephen Thompson has to say about the song and the album it is from – Tremble The Sails.
Tremble the Sails comes as a pleasant surprise — the sort of old acquaintance you’re happy to see pop up on Facebook after a mysterious absence. Buried Beds’ sound has naturally evolved in the intervening years, fleshed out and spiked with a bit of anthemic urgency: “Steady Hand” opens Tremble the Sails on an auspicious note, building majestically as its strings, guitars and boy-girl harmonies combine to form a sweetly soaring roar. It’s a lovely surprise to be reminded of this under-exposed sleeper, and to revel in the end of its self-imposed silence.
