S. Carey: “Leave”
This session features a novel approach to the S. Carey bonus track “Leave,” from the band’s 2010 album “All We Grow.” Sean Carey’s musical experience covered a broad range of work when we he began work on his first solo record, All We Grow, from a jazz and classical background to his work with Bon Iver. It all melded together, though, into a beautifully deep, moving album. For “Leave,” Davy chose to compose for one violin and two violas and cellos, a departure from the typical string quintet arrangement. The meditative discord heard in the album version of the song is echoed in Davy’s composition; building intensity throughout the piece, vocal and instrumental melodies culminate to create a sense of urgency.
