LES AILES ‘But I Love You’

Apr 27, 2022 | Acoustic, Reviews

Miles of tarmac & tears

In terms of music the adjective cinematic is often reserved for the likes of Hans Zimmer and grandiose swiping orchestral scores. Surely it would apply to any song telling a tale? We all visual scenarios songs paint us. Don’t we?

Rylie DeGarmo a.k.a Les Ailes offers us a glimpse of her peripatetic life in the US Southern States on But I Love You. It’s a travel journal of love and loss as she ‘tries to make the most of the cards as they lay’, but it’s still the next town that comes out the winner. There’s countrified swing, torch song drama, and miles of tarmac and tears.

If the glorious day comes when Neko Case soundtracks a David Lynch film, they could take some cues from Les Ailes.
