Dallas Green is not an easy man to pin. Originally known as the melodic-vocals frontman in Canadian screamo outfit Alexisonfire, he forsook the band (who have since broken up as a result) and hardcore metal altogether to pursue his acoustic solo side project City and Colour full-time.
From City and Colour’s upcoming fourth album, Northern Wind, “Of Space and Time” is a perfect example that Green may be on to something. Open, spacious and breathable, the waltzing track rolls effortlessly on hushed brush drums, easy-strummed acoustics, atmospheric lap steel, cello and Green’s accessible buttery baritone. It’s a mark of a maturing artist who traded heavy distortion and top-of-your-lungs aggression for space and time, and the 180-degree metamorphosis feels completely natural. Stream it below.
