Santa Cruz, California based Bobcat Rob & The Nightly Howl will release their forthcoming LP A Different Horse on September 14th. Housing twelve roots-infused songs that showcase a range of emotion. From folky contemplations to bluesy rockers, A Different Horse encapsulates the broad facets of the Americana genre.
Today, the band unleashes its new single, “Letters,” a dust-tinged tune that blends an outlaw sentiment with the desert heat, like a horseback-bound cowboy charging forward in the unrelenting sun. “I wrote ‘Letters’ after moving from Southern California to the Eastern Sierras, around the same time that I was recording my first solo record,” recalls frontman Bobcat Rob Armenti. “It ended up not going on that record because I felt I hadn’t found the right sound for it yet. After setting it aside for a few years, I brought it back out during a rehearsal with my band and it started to take the form and vibe that I had always heard in my head. Once that happened, it easily found a home on this new record.”
