Desert Life is an alt-country and folk americana duo that delve into the intricacies of human lives and relationships. Composed of Welsh singer-songwriter, Chris Swales, and multi-instrumentalist, Tom Jordan, the banner was founded as a medium for reflective encounters and ruminative listening experiences. After a four-year hiatus, Desert Life has released their new single, I don’t wanna know, an acoustic exposition that is about the difficulties of seeing an ex-partner move on to the next person. Molded with heartache and resigned melancholy, the track is honest and vulnerable. Listeners of Jeff Tweedy, Bon Iver, Ryan Adams, and R.E.M are sure to enjoy the work of this banner.

The track opens with a community of acoustic strings washed by rich weaves of accordion melodies. They are incredibly expressive as they swell against the baritones. A steady beat pattern sets the rhythm. Chris’s warm vocals are a mellow boom, each word sung with irrepressible emotion. And when they all tie in together, underneath the grief, you can pick up on a life lived and love vanquished. Listen Now!

This track teases their upcoming album, ‘Let it all pass’ which is all set to be released in September 2023. The collection of songs is seemingly composed to absorb the listeners in slice-of-life narratives looped into philosophical frames and spiritual themes.

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
