DOUG TUTTLE SHARES NEW TRACK ‘WEAK ENDS’

NEW EP ‘PINECONE’ OUT ON JULY 9TH VIA WILD HONEY RECORDS

Massachusetts-based artist Doug Tuttle will release his new EP ‘Pinecone’ on July 9th through Wild Honey Records. Following the release of ‘Lead Mask’, Doug has now shared the EP’s closing song ‘Weak Ends’:

Weak Ends whisks you away into the middle of the rolling rhythms that emerge instantly. These delicate vocal notes push the exploration onto its powerful course. Doug embraces the love of melody and the profound ability to create the most immersive creations. Lyrically the new track allures the audience in and finds this compelling trait to offer a visually appealing journey, the words create a clear picture and the instrumentation packs such depth and a crucial influence.

This really is a beautiful and melodic consuming journey, when the release abruptly ends, it leaves the audience desperate to bask in more of Tuttle’s creations.

Throughout the harrowed edges of the 2020 pandemic, Doug Tuttle’s Pine Cone EP was born from hours spent whiling away the time in an ever-increasing apprehension. As the uncertain landscape outside frayed and unravelled, Tuttle turned his task towards songwriting constructed around stripped-down melodies and simple, self-soothing repetition. Like a half-recalled tune that sticks in your head or a mantra meant to focus the mind, each of these five songs is steeped in the nostalgic remembrance of better times set against a wobbling, unreliable reality.
At times adrift in cyclical jangly pop as on “Lead Mask,” shimmering, affected piano and sun-blistered guitar as on the hook-y “Weak Ends,” or thoroughly steeped in wavering, grief-laden guitar slide as on “Darkness Under Blight,” Pine Cone EP feels comfortably well-worn from back and forth pacing, or rubbed smooth like a worry-stone carried in the pocket.
