Magnolia North Feat. Lindsay Lou, ‘Into a Hole’ [Exclusive Premiere]
Americana duo Magnolia North are premiering their brand-new song "Into a Hole" exclusively for readers of The Boot -- and, as a special treat, they're sharing a live performance of the song. Press play above to watch the pair play the bluegrass-tinged tune.
Country fans may recognize a familiar face in the video: Nashville up-and-comer Lindsay Lou lends her rich vocals and stand-up bass playing to "Into a Hole." Penned by band members Steve Foltz and Jennifer Middleton, the song also features fiddling from Melissa McGinley and Kevin Finn on drums, and is the first single from the band's self-titled debut album.
The song itself is a little bit of a study in contradictions, exploring the "highs and lows" of early love, according to Foltz: "A lot of the story has to do with each of our previous experiences. We decided to shape the music in the form of a country waltz, which kept a fun and light counterpoint to what could have been a heavy feeling," he tells The Boot. ""Into a Hole" is what emerged, anti-psychotics, old barns, roadkill and all!"
Magnolia North is Foltz's side project with his wife, Middleton; he is also a member of the bluegrass band Trout Steak Revival. The two co-wrote their self-titled debut album in Coal Creek Canyon, Colo., in a remote cabin they own.
Magnolia North is officially due out on Nov. 30, but is currently available for purchase. Fans can learn more about the band via their website.
