North Carolina’s country folk group Mount Moriah will release their second album, Miracle Temple, on February 26th via Merge Records. In a press release, the band says they were striving for a bolder sound than their 2011 self-titled debut, a shift apparent in the lead single “Younger Days”. Bolstered by crisp guitar lines, a warm organ, and frontman Heather McEntire’s winsome vocals, the track pleads and yearns. But its emotionality doesn’t pour out so to speak it’s tucked slightly into McEntire’s words and phrases and it’s that restraint and concealment which make the song come across all the more powerful.
