Caroline Heerwagen brought the intensity of Bone Acre To Life Check out our thoughts, photos and video from echo Park Rising!
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…Bone Acre was a band that I had on my radar for close to a year and based on the buzz from my music peers about this band, I was super excited to catch them for the first time at this Bands In A Barbershop showcase. The hype was all well deserved.
Their 2018 debut album Oll Korrect is an intense experience. Broken dreams, broken hearts, broken souls … sung by the lush alto of Caroline Heerwagen’s voice. Even when the instrumental arrangement isn’t propelled by a heavily distorted dark pulse (i.e. “Home Song”), the yearning in Caroline’s voice fills in those bright spots with shades of gray.
What made their Echo Park Rising performance aces in my books, was how they brought the intensity of the recordings to life on the stage. All of the anguish and depth in the songs performed were channeled through Caroline’s stage presence. Every subtle hand gesture, whether they were cradling her face or reaching out into space, added an indescribable gravity to music, and it was pretty powerful to experience.
I would love to catch Bone Acre in a venue with a moodier atmosphere. Dimly lit. Crowded room. The smell of sweat in the air. It may be harder to get any decent photos, but I think I need to see them again in that kind of setting…”
