One half of the North Carolina-based, folk-pop six-piece Delta Rae is composed of three siblings—Ian, Eric and Brittany Hölljes—whose upbringing saw them live in various cities all across the United States. As a result, it is unsurprising that the band cites the vastness of both America’s landscape and its folklore when describing its music. The group’s self-proclaimed wide-lens view of “the folklore and romance of the American frontier” is especially evident on “Cold Day In Heaven,” found on their forthcoming album, After It All. This standout track, reminiscent of Rumors-era Fleetwood Mac, features male-female vocal harmonies, folk-pop textures and plenty of dramatic grandeur.

After crowdfunding their debut, Carry The Fire, Delta Rae spent a year-and-a-half writing and recording After It All, to be released on April 7 (pre-order here and here). Check out our exclusive premiere of “Cold Day In Heaven” below:

  1. I don’t see how this can be categorized as folk. It is a million miles away from folk music. The singing style is completely mainstream “pop” with all that phoney “R&B” “style” technique. Sure they are “good” proficient and will get a push from their record company and sell gobs of records to the newbies who don’t know what folk music is.
