Lula Wiles – Love Gone Wrong
Vodka has always had a soft spot for close female harmonies and the wonderful three-piece, Lula Wiles, does not disappoint. Steeped in the traditions of folk music, Lula Wiles bandmates, Isa Burke, Eleanor Buckland, and Mali Obomsawin, add just a hint of a more modern indie sound that keeps their music fresh and delightfully accessible while remaining true to the story-telling traditions of folk music. Love Gone Wrong (seen/heard here) is the lead-off track to the band’s sophomore long-player, What Will We Do (January 2019).
So what does a track-by-track analysis reveal about Lula Wiles sound? They fall in the difficult category between indie-folk, straight folk, and country. These are all just flavorings, though, as the troupe is not committed, or beholden, to a particular genre or sound. They adopt a melody or style to reflect what the lyrics demand. The effect overall is a sound that is diverse enough to hold your interest throughout the twelve tracks and cohesive enough to belong together in the same collection. It’s a balancing act that these three young women handle to perfection.
