First Listen: Anna Tivel – Look Away

a2464855316_10There is a strain of hopefulness that rises from the folkish melancholy of “Look Away,” the new single from Portland, Oregon singer/songwriter Anna Tivel.

The opening track to Tivel’s forthcoming third album, Heroes Waking Up, the plainspoken “Look Away” — with its minimal production from Austin Nevins (Josh Ritter, Mountain Goats) — positions Tivel’s narrator as a lyrical persuader, urging one through hardships seen or imagined.

To be released on 20 May, you can stream “Look Away” below and pre-order Heroes Waking Up on CD or digital format via Fluff and Gravy Records.
