Listen to “Silver And Lead,” a new roots rock rambler from XPN Artist to Watch Cosmic Guilt
On their latest single, XPN Artist to Watch Cosmic Guilt ponders death in fever dream of nimble acoustic guitars, wailing gospel-inspired vocals, and a rambling groove.
On “Silver and Lead,” singer-songwriter and frontperson James Everhart paints a vivid lyrical picture of aimlessness, frustration, and fear, with images of church bells and jumping trains as one’s mortality wanes.
“Funny all the things are going past in my head, so dizzy I can’t stand,” he sings. “Just might be a bullet made of silver and lead, wouldn’t that be grand?”
With that wish for the big exit, we get a rip roaring harmonica solo by Todd Fausnacht to guide us to the light while the band’s raw playing keeps us grounded. Listen to “Silver and Lead” and watch Cosmic Guilt’s Unprecedented Sessions performance of the song below.
