A sinister force emerges from Lera Lynn’s voice. In reimagining her song “Dark Horse,” the musician peels back synthetic layers to reveal a coursing folk root. Her voice is as ethereal as ever, but this time, she is left to gusting like a northbounding wind through reedy acoustic guitar.
“No, I can’t wait no more, alone, alone / Dark horse, you don’t have to hide,” she snakes through withering vegetation. It’s more haunted than before, yet still rooted in something altogether delicate.
