"Sewer Cap" by the alt folk outfit Jailbox takes beautiful breaths

The song Sewer Cap by Jailbox is a dense piece of alt folk. From the get go the melodies flood out swept up in deep wells of acoustic guitar, piano, string sounds and beautiful harmonies in an out of breath pace sort of way. The feeling is that of being overwhelmed, the strings veer into dissonant places and flickers of piano keys bring in tension. The song does take much needed  breaths and at these moments there is a respite that feels like a beautiful sigh. 

Jailbox hail from Perryville, Missouri (USA) and is currently based out of St. Louis. Sewer Cap is the 3rd single released thus far this year.
