Exclusive Premiere: Rachel Garlin, ‘This Winding Road’
Ahead of the release of her latest full-length, Wink at July, Diffuser is beyond thrilled to partner with Rachel Garlin to give you a taste of what to expect with the record in the form of the new track, “This Winding Road.” Take the song for a spin in the audio player below.
Currently based in San Francisco, Garlin has amassed an impressive catalog over the years, with each release stacked to the brim with unforgettable stories, intricate musical arrangements and Garlin’s beautiful vocals — and “This Winding Road” might be our favorite yet.
“With references ranging from The New York Times’ Sunday column, ‘Modern Love,’ to the canyons and reservoirs of the Berkley Hills, ‘This Winding Road’ is a homecoming tale with a driving, yet retrospective, feel,” Garlin tells us about the new song.
She goes on about the album, “How each of us understand and view the people and places of our childhood while existing in a fast-paced modern world is a theme throughout Wink at July.”
As an artist who loves performing her music live, Garlin has several gigs lined up in the near future, including an appearance at “Lyme Aid,” a benefit show in Berkeley for singer-songwriter Melissa Crabtree, this Friday, April 17. You can find her complete tour itinerary here, and make sure to stay up-to-date with everything happening in her world — including the April 21 release of Wink at July — at her official website.
