Fort Frances - The Lowlands

When I heard that this song was "ukulele/acoustic guitar/harmony driven" I was expecting to hear a jaunty cutesy song. But it's not like that, instead it's a gorgeous and delicate song, perfect for the winter. The ukelele is understated and blends in well. And then there's the harmonies that make your heart flutter. It's one of the prettiest songs I've heard all year, looks like 2011 has been saving the best for last. Find Fort Frances on FB and Bandcamp. They released a full length album, The Atlas, in February of this year so make sure you give it a spin.

"Don't let the years bring us to our knees, 
may love be enough to cover 
these days in the dust."
