Loose Wing – “Country Numbers”
Americana Highways is hosting this premiere of Loose Wing’s song “Country Numbers” from their forthcoming album Miracle Baby. Miracle Baby was produced by Loose Wing, recorded by Taylor Carroll at Bear Creek Studio, and mixed by Cameron Elliott at Broken Machines. It was mastered by Matthew Barnhart at Chicago Mastering Service.
“Country Numbers” is Claire Tucker on guitar, vocals, and keyboards; Bill Patton on guitar, pedal steel, vocals, and keyboards; Aimee Zoe on drums and percussion and Jack Peters on bass, with Bill Jones on trumpet and Andrew Rudd on vibraphone.
This sounds like a comfortable, country song as the music sets up. Lyrically, its unique commentary on trying to “make it” and the depth of the rat race is a chilling reminder, with lyrics like “still waters hide the bodies, lots of folks are gone, prove yourself, leave a little light for the rest of us…. obscurity is natural placement.”
The title of the album, Miracle Baby, is taken from a lyric in “Country Numbers.” It’s a lyrically abstract song, and one of my favorites on the album. It’s also about life being weird. It’s weird that we put so much pressure on ourselves and others, and weird that we as societies are willing to sacrifice people’s lives for things like global dominance and financial gain. I guess the lyrics are a little weird, too, but the vibe is nice. — Claire Tucker, Loose Wing
