As Volcano Choir‘s new album Repave slowly approaches, our love for Justin Vernon and the post-rock collective slowly grows. The opening single to the album, “Byegone,” was a brooding anthem that far eclipsed any of the group’s former releases. With it’s heavy chord progressions and gripping lyrics, it was easy to absorb yourself into the music and chant along with Vernon. Though their newest single “Comrade” takes many features from Bon Iver with its slick guitar riffs and minor inflections of auto-tune, the heaving breakdowns and intense lyrics serve as a reminder of Vernon’s new-found confidence in the group.
