New Music | Fort Frances – I Had Love

[A]s spring approaches, is here, or is finally springing we’re going to need the bright sunny music that shines a light on the day.

Maybe you missed it, but I posted on their absolutely gorgeous video and song “Cities in Dust.” At the time, they were giving away their album The Atlas (one which I enjoyed quite a bit), and today they are releasing a brand new track titled “Lowlands,” an ambling acoustic ballad. Their music is a healthy dose of folk/acoustic and singer David McMillin’s voice is perfect for the poignancy of this song. The stripped down nature of the song makes it feel all that…
