Today I'm posting plenty of songs for those of you who have been following my blog.
The Dear Hunter began as Casey Crescenzo's side project while in The Receiving End of Sirens. Now, Casey is working full time in The Dear Hunter and commenced the creation of a six-album story arch in 2006. The band uses a large array of instrumentation (strings, horns, guitars, drums, and more) and genre styles throughout his albums, from a cappella harmonies to shoegazing to metal. Black Sandy Beaches comes off of Act III in the 6 part story arch. The aching lyrics, soothing tremolo picking and three-four time make this song a longing waltz, alone in your bedroom.I highly recommend you buy and listen to all three albums; this song is only a peak into The Dear Hunter's genius.
