Ley Line: “Slow Down”

By: Jack Anderson

Frequenters of KUTX’s airwaves will recognize the name Ley Line right off the bat. Their multi-lingual, internationally-inspired folk earned the quartet a spot as our KUTX Artist of the Month last October, right around the same time they released heavy rotation pick “Oxum” and subsequently appeared at Austin City Limits music festival.

Ley Line’s legacy of airy vocal harmonies, quaint arrangements, and synergy between the four unique songwriters continues with the upcoming record, We Saw Blue. The release schedule’s hit some obvious hurdles in the past couple months, but Ley Line’s decided that one of We Saw Blue‘s B-side offerings is too fitting for our present scenario not to seize this moment of exigence, “Slow Down”!
