Music Review for the new release, ‘Hard Reset’ by Bent Roads Tavern
July 2020 – At times, we all need to start over real bad, even if just to look at the world with a fresh perspective. The songs on Hard Reset, a brand new EP from Bent Roads Tavern, feels like songs of new beginnings and redemption.
This talented act is all about channeling the authenticity of the greatest folk music, with a penchant for authentic storytelling and relatable melodies. Each song brings a different twist to the EP, revealing the artist’s ample creative scope and exploring different creative directions, while remaining anchored to the staples of modern indie-folk music.
At times, these songs are intimate and low-key. On the other hand, the group is all about orchestrating lavish arrangement, taking their music to a more personal, expansive and exciting direction.
