New Night Beds: Ramona


In preparation for his February debut Country Sleep, Night Beds' Winston Yellen has released another beautiful single, "Ramona," as part of the teasing trail that will soon lead to his crop of highly-anticipated indie rock gems. Unlike the soothing first sample, "Even If We Try," Night Beds' latest tune is a falsetto-streaked country-rock story, upbeatedly drifting over echoey sliding guitars and jangly percussion. Resembling beautiful Bon Iver-like rustic chords, Yellen's falsetto treads similar territory but with a crystal clear resonance that channels the late, and equally gorgeous songbird, Jeff Buckley. With each new taste, however, Yellen refreshingly sounds more and more like one of a kind.
