Harmony Woods
Sofia Verbilla pens stories just as much as she writes songs. The 18-year-old leader of Harmony Woods is an acute observer of the world around her, full of curiosity and empathy, and she folds a generous amount of narrative detail into the band's debut, Nothing Special. The album sonically parallels emo-revival acts like Sorority Noise and Modern Baseball (the latter's Jacob Ewald produced Nothing Special) as well as emotive singer-songwriters like Mitski. Its songs track the dissolution of a toxic relationship, but this is no broken-hearts-club tale — Nothing Special instead focuses on themes of mental health and self-care, encapsulated in the inviting lead single, "Jenkintown-Wyncote." Named for a regional rail station near Verbilla's home in the Philadelphia suburbs, it details the anxiety of travel – both in the literal sense of riding a train into the city ("Trees pass by as the windows shake / the brakes squeaking without fail") and the emotional and metaphorical sense of moving outside of one's comfort zone. The narrator is nervous and uncertain, but the drums are punchy and the guitar shimmers, whisking them to a destination full of cautious optimism.
