Still in its relative infancy, Bucolic, the project of Pitman, NJ-based songwriter Seth Carpenter, has started to trickle out promising lo-fi demos since launching early last year. Operating just a click Noth of Rowan, Carpenter is already making inroads in Philly and NYC, already due to make return appearances in both cities this month.
Back in November, Bucolic dropped the Great Miles Old Demo offering listeners a four-song appetizer of what’s on the horizon. For a set of demos, it’s a pretty well-realized work with each song painting an intimate new portrait of Carpenter’s folktronic aesthetic. Nature, as the album art and video for the Demo’s title-track further indicate, plays a big part in Bucolic’s overall aesthetic and I’m really excited to see how this all develops beyond these initial offerings.
