As its title suggests, “Wake of Waking” is testament to a time of questions, deliberations, and declarations. It is an encourage to move headlong down an uncertain road. The opening track “Flood” mirrors both the magnificence and trepidation of this uncertainty saying, “here comes the flood, stumbling through my blood, I’m trying to understand its hum...”. Songs like “Old Soul” start out intimate before erupting into a cathartic free-for-all.
Though mainly driven by acoustic guitar, wistful cello lines, lonely harmonies, subtle drumming, and Justin Kilburn’s haunting lap steel give the songs a cohesive, yet diverse quality. The album was recorded mostly in Sea Side Lounge in South Slope, Brooklyn and was engineered and produced by Nick Smeraski.
