With their latest release, 'Monarch' (Oct 27th), Maine holler-folk quartet The Ghost of Paul Revere stays true to their folksy, harmony-heavy “Avett Brothers with a twist of bluegrass” (The Boston Globe) sound while exploring darker topics through metaphors of art, New England winters, and entomology.
Over its eleven-track narrative, ‘Monarch’ makes a powerful statement about positive growth: sometimes rip-your-heart-out pain and chilling isolation are necessary in order to achieve metamorphosis.
Written in locations as diverse as Portland, Philadelphia, and the Great Smoky Mountains, The Ghost of Paul Revere (named after a lingering dream that singer-guitarist Griffin Sherry had in college) knew they wanted to push the sonic envelope with ‘Monarch.’ Drums, cello, and piano were incorporated into their sound, and for the first time, the band recorded each song’s parts separately in order to achieve more intricate and grandiose arrangements. Less-than-obvious inspirations like Radiohead and Led Zeppelin became more prominent, as bassist/singer Sean McCarthy explained that the band’s recording process “enabled us to get a lot more adventurous with our ideas.”
“If there’s one takeaway from ‘Monarch,’ it’s that change is inevitable,” says Griffin Sherry. “Lovers, family, friends, instruments, sounds; they all transform with time. The key to thriving and surviving in a challenging world is to embrace those transformations.”
