Alanna Gurr | Hell Or High Water (Video)

The country-tinged Alanna Gurr and The Greatest State are a four-piece band on the verge of officially releasing  their record, “Late At Night”, on April 22 via Missed Connection Records. I’ve only heard two of the eight songs, the rollicking ditty “Golden Coast” and the “Hell Or High Water”, but the songs are enough to signal a interesting record coming down the pipeline. The former song is soulful with its backing harmonies and throwback guitar grooves. It’s gorgeous. You can hear it at bandcamp. And thanks to Southern Souls troubadour videographer Mitch Fillion, you can listen to “Hell Or High Water”, which is a much slower track, billowy in its sleepy waltzing rhythm and lovely honky-tonk bar unraveling. Gurr’s vocals are complimentary to the musical style, unique and wispy, her extremely high timbre delicate as ripples in a pool — a softer version of Jolie Holland.
