The Wooden Sky has been making music for over a decade, so when one of the founding members left the band, the Toronto folk-rock band had to figure out how to regroup and move forward. Nowhere near calling it quits, they headed home to Canada and hit the recording studio. To capture the raw power of their live performances, they kept on the move, bouncing throughout several studios in Toronto. They’ll soon be emerging with Let’s Be Ready, their fourth full-length album, out June 16 through Nevado Music.
“Maybe It’s No Secret,” the first single from the upcoming album, showcases the Wooden Sky’s exuberant and explosive style, which continues to unfold after repeated listening. It’s a rock-driven track, with steady percussion, playful guitar and an easy, melodic style that, when paired with Gavin Gardiner’s deep, folksy warble, is reminiscent of Tom Petty and other folk-rock greats.
