Goldfeather, ‘Patchwork Quilt’ [Exclusive Premiere]
Brooklyn-based indie-folk five-piece Goldfeather are premiering "Patchwork Quilt," the title track from their forthcoming debut album, exclusively for readers of The Boot.
"Patchwork Quilt" features the distinctive vocals of lead singer Sarah Goldfeather, whose rich, full timbre and breathy expressiveness lends a whimsical quality to a track that's all about feeling a bit "scattered."
"Someone once called me a patchwork quilt because I tend to act in a scattered series of unrelated patterns," says Goldfeather. "I always thought of this person as a wooden arrow because of he was always sure of his deliberate direction in life."
The band (obviously) takes its name from its lead singer and founder, who is joined by Dylan McKinstry on mandolin, Katie Martucci on guitar, Nathan Koci on accordion and banjo and Pat Swoboda on double bass to round out Goldfeather. The group's sound draws influence from jazz, bluegrass, contemporary and folk music -- or, more succinctly, "every genre imaginable."
Goldfeather's Patchwork Quilt album is set for release in September. Fans can keep up with the band on their official website.
