Magnolia Bayou Debuts New LP’s Latest Single, ‘Sweet Magnolia’

Independent southern rock band Magnolia Bayou debuted its latest single last week.

The band debuted its new single ‘Sweet Magnolia‘ Aug. 13.  The song is the third single from the band’s forthcoming sophomore album Strange Place, which is scheduled for release Sept. 24.  Its debut last week follows the premiere of the album’s lead single ‘Tupelo‘ and its follow-up ‘Thieves.’

The musical  arrangement at the center of ‘Sweet Magnolia’ is a gentle, flowing acoustic composition that combines influences of The Allman Brothers Band with Zac Brown Band and other similar acts.  The arrangement stands out through the juxtaposition of its more melancholy verses and slightly lighter chorus.  The pairing works to translate the message in the song’s lyrical content.

The lyrical theme in question comes across as a man who is expressing his misery at being alone in the verses.  The chorus sections are lighter, expressing the happiness that the “sweet magnolia” brings him.

‘Sweet Magnolia’ is available to stream and download here.
