Sounds like: Faulkner’s short stories brought to life in hauntingly beautiful instrumental melodies and almost-eerie vocals. War Jacket’s lyrics evoke a sort of sad nostalgia beckoning listeners to sit and stew in memory and reflection of a different time.
Download: War Jacket recently penned the score for local film, Blue of the Sky. Get a free download of the instrumental soundtrack. Or, check out “Live Like Your Going Home,” War Jacket’s first full-length album. We love “Remember You Used to Love Me,” for its tender melancholic tone.
