Matthew Fountain and the Whereabouts share new single "This Is Kneeling"

Matthew Fountain and the Whereabouts share new single "This Is Kneeling"

 With southern charm and a penchant for finger picking to boot, Matthew Fountain and his band the Whereabouts have released the second single from their album Born On The Hook. "This Is Kneeling" nods heavily at Fountain's religious tutelage, vulnerability expressed through a trope of prayer.

The song is a slow roller, beautifully building on itself as it lyrically progresses. Fountain's voice is low and supple, coupling wonderfully with the sedative, folky pattern the song takes. A video for "This Is Kneeling" was also released, featuring a ballet dancer and choreographer named Candace Bouchard illustrating the progression of the song through her movements. The song, dance and video itself all bloom into a work of art that is pretty sonically and visually pleasing.

Give "This Is Kneeling" a listen below and check out the video where it premiered, over on Impose.
