Written by Luke Tromiczak and performed by a rotating group of musicians from across the United States, Blood and Sun are known for dark and haunting songs drawing heavily from Americana and neo-folk – likely to appeal to fans of everything from Of the Wand and the Moon and Steve Von Til to Wovenhand and Echo & The Bunnymen. Luke commented: ‘Ochre marks the fatted ram and he bows to take his place.’ Piano and strings dominate this cinematic arrangement as mandolins creep through the hedges. The finishing touches of James Moy's synthesisers play off the basslines, bringing to mind Angelo Badalamenti. Ritual sacrifice, wooded groves, and tobacco fields on childhood road trips all seep up. An unlikely horn-crowned Moses drenched in Mythric blood!
