Wisconsin folk outfit Field Report previewed their upcoming sophomore album, Marigolden, with the melancholy piano ballad “Wings”. Now, Chris Porterfied and co. reveal a more twangy, pop-orientated sound with “Home (Leave The Lights On)”.
On the track, there’s a ping-ponging synth that flutters under light acoustic guitar strums. Even though “coming home” is a well-worn lyrical notion throughout all Americana music, Porterfield really sells his sense of longing when he sings heartfelt lines like, “Leave the lights on because it might be nighttime when I get there.”
