THE FARM’s unified blend is an aural representation of the melting-pot mentality at the heart of America.
“There are a lot of bands out there that you could take a member out and not know the difference,” Nick, the fiddle-playing singer, notes. “This is not one of those bands.”
“It’s really three elements that you bring together,” Krista adds. “Like earth, wind, fire – and there we are.”
THE FARM’s first album demonstrates the various musical sources at work. The crunchy chords in “Fresh Off the Farm” pull from classic rock. “Be Grateful” relies on pop melodicism. And “Farm Party” builds on a hip-hop counter-hook and a rhythmic center that’s old-school R&B at its heart.
