Through semblances of Townes Van Zandt, Barna Howard seems to be finding himself embedded into a time and place that isn’t 2015 and frankly I’m enjoying it a ton. His small-town folk sensibility seems to be a creative driving force behind his upcoming record, Quite a Feelin’. On new track “Indiana Rose,” Howard laments a love-lost and regret, it’s this sense of reflection and the imagery he uses within his writing that makes this song familiar even as it is brand new. Howard seems to have captured something with this one, that instantly creates a sense of nostalgia, and pure honesty that easily resonates with me.
Look for more from Howard as we lead up to his upcoming record, May 18th.
