Seattle-based folk-pop duo —March To May — have already spent five consecutive weeks at the top of video charts with their debut single — “Embers.”
March To May formed early 2013 when Darren Guyaz (guitar, vocals, keyboard) and Beth Wesche (Celtic harp, vocals) co-wrote two songs.
The duo has since drawn comparisons to acts like The Civil Wars, Damien Rice and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. Their debut EP [The Water’s Edge] was released in April.
We had a listen to Embers:
Gently sighing strings and a darker toned cello facilitate an inviting caramel voice (from Darren) to slide in unnoticed.
Then Beth’s own ruby-ochre hues join in with the glistening sadness.
Darkness disguises itself behind every fold in this wonderfully moving ode to grief.
Eloquent, rust-toned and full of virtuous humility…
