Friends of the Bog are thrilled to announce the release of their two-song single, “Glow Worm.”
Their first release since 2017’s LP Lyra, “Glow Worm”showcases a new, percussion-driven sonic direction in addition to the band’s signature melodic folk sound.
The single’s two tracks, “A Glow” and “Earthworm,” written and sung by Matt Beard and Beth Hyland, respectively, highlight the six-member band’s collaborative approach to songwriting and performance.
“A Glow” is a driving, polyrhythmic folk rocker about a Quixotic quest for glory, love, and spiritual purity, while “Earthworm” is a tongue-in-cheek folk tune about the moment of realization that a former lover has finally moved on.
“Glow Worm” is the first of several anticipated single releases leading up to a second LP.
The songs were recorded and mixed by Patrick Budde at Preserve Records and mastered by Philadelphia’s Ryan Schwabe (Big Thief, Shannen Moser).
