Folk-Rock group Honey Cellar have released their latest album entitled "Borders". Hailing from Chicago, this five piece group that comes from the windy city is blending traditional Folk, infused with a touch of rock. "Borders" combines the genres well which will help achieve this group some cross-over appeal for those who are looking for a little bit of both.
The album captures some beautiful harmonies that really make this album shine. Songs like “Passing Ships” steals the spotlight greatly on this album. A catchy backbeat compliments the sound of their violin that helps create a recipe for a dynamic and memorable song. The vocals are reminiscent of Lucinda Williams, Roseanne Cash or even The Waifs. Tracks like “Curtain” and “Rice” are great additions on this album.
While "Borders" is undoubtedly Southern, it will appeal to fans of Classic Rock or even Country music. There are some interesting nuances that set it apart from other folk and Americana-influenced albums.
This album is worth checking out and definitely catching a show on their tour.
