You’ve Got The Trees reminds us of spring in the countryside. Featuring soft-cooing strings, crisp vocals, and visual romantic lines, it is no wonder that this song became an instant charmer to the public.
On the Corner adds a more theatrical flair with narrating lines and low, solid strumming. It adds depth and a darker emotion, which is a bit different from the sunshine-filled opener. While A Song For Someone features earthly, stripped acoustic arrangement and heart-melting vocals. Press play and let this sonic gem captivate your senses.
Sailing smoothly in an ocean of fluid folk strings, The Sweet Taste of Defeat is a melancholic piece that highlights Highton’s polished and refreshing voice. The track has the ability to penetrate into our skin and touch your deepest core.
Woodditton Wives Club respects the balance between depth and sound. It is a well-mastered album that deserves all the praises. Whether you’re happy or feeling low, the album sets you in the right mood and most importantly, teaches you to appreciate the beauty of everyday life.
