Taking their name from a small West Texas town of 500 inhabitants, Balmorhea’s music has always been influenced by the Texan lifestyle. Stranger sees the sextet moving “beyond contemplative reverence for the land and the history of their home state” as the issued press release explains.
Balmorhea’s forthcoming album “explores the kinetic rhythms that dictate our day-to-day lives, fascinated by the wanderlust that drove the itinerant hearts of our earliest settlers and that continues to pulse in the kids roaming Texas’ suburban sprawl. Unsettled, but patient, these songs embrace everyday sensuality, youthful discovery, and nomadic reverie…awe-struck by the divine energy that permeates all of our earthly fauna and flora.”
‘Days’. the glorious album opener, has just surfaced the web. Immerse yourself in this almost 9-minute long track.
