The Northern California Americana group releases the 2nd single from their upcoming album Buttermilk Brine
(NEVADA CITY, CA) - NOVEMBER 11, 2022 - Farrow and the Peach Leaves, an eclectic indie group celebrated for their popular mix of americana, blues, rock and country, have released their new single, “Adeline” on Spotify and Apple Music. The track is the 2nd single from the groups upcoming album Buttermilk Brine, which will be released on December 9th, 2022. The band has also announced a string of upcoming dates in California, Oregon and Washington.
The Nevada City group of longtime friends has been at it since 2016, delivering live shows that get crowds dancing but also take listeners on a journey filled with profound joys, devastating grief, vulnerability and the occasional shed tear. Vocalist and songwriter Graham Farrow Knibb’s authenticity and deeply personal subject matter are bolstered by the contributions of each of the six band members as well as the arrangements developed in collaboration with producer Evan Bailey. In addition to Graham Farrow Knibb, members include Zach Peach (Drums), Leif Bonfils (Bass), Keith Knibb (Guitar), Justin Peach (Guitar) and Hunter Jones (Pedal Steel/Keys).
Their upcoming LP Buttermilk Brine was written throughout early 2021 and draws inspiration from the band’s love of seventies country rock, blues guitar stylings and the unique gestalt of their home region of the Sierra Nevada Foothills. Indeed, Knibb’s lyrics, and the album’s overall trajectory, orbit themes that evoke their hometown of Nevada City, California, a small town nestled in an underrepresented nook of Northern California. Knibb describes the region as brimming with incredible beauty, while populated with a wild mix of weed growers, coal rollers, demi-cults, fiery bible thumpers, and strung out down-and-outs.
The band recorded Buttermilk Brine with producer Evan Bailey (Oh Lonesome Ana and Sun Valley Gun Club) and the album was engineered, mixed, mastered and recorded live-to-tape by Grammy-nominated engineer Jack Shirley at Atomic Garden East in Oakland.
Farrow and the Peach Leaves speak further on the single - "Adeline is a song written from either side of a failing relationship, teetering on the edge of desperate continuation or gut-wrenching solace. Relationships can be a crutch to lean into when we are at our weakest, but sometimes to truly heal you have to put pressure back on the foot and walk on your own.
Sometimes we are so enamored with the person manipulating us, we don’t even seem to mind that they run our trains off the track. Just so long as they keep the coal burning hot, we seem to be ready, waiting eagerly at the station for the next train, before the dust has even settled from the mess being moved to the side.
In the first verse, we hear from a tired, manipulative and sad character who has ended up spending more time alone then they ever thought they’d have to. They have found more comfort and support in substances than from the partner they fell in love with. In the second verse we hear from the other face of the coin, a character facing their limit. Knowing it better to leave the situation, they decide to ratchet it up a couple notches to really make sure the top blows off. Selfish, immature and addicted to the suffering. This relationship is doomed, as are the characters, stuck in a rut and destined to repeat.
What’s the point in being “right” if you know the person you’re in love with isn’t going to change? Do you need to stab the knife in deeper and twist it, just for a bitter taste of vindication?"
