The song Sanc­tu­ary was writ­ten and record­ed with a mes­sage of hope; for­tu­nate­ly many of those prayers have just been answered, giv­ing its lyrics an added cel­e­bra­to­ry note. 

North Car­oli­na folk band Hiss Gold­en Mes­sen­ger, with M.C. Tay­lor at the helm, has pro­duced a warm and beau­ti­ful slice of Amer­i­cana in this atmos­pher­i­cal­ly rich num­ber. Sanc­tu­ary has a sooth­ing qual­i­ty – and do check out the utter­ly cap­ti­vat­ing KidE­th­nic-direct­ed music video. 

Over the course of the last decade, Hiss Gold­en Mes­sen­ger have released sev­en crit­i­cal­ly acclaimed albums and received their first Gram­my nom­i­na­tion for the 2019 album Terms of Sur­ren­der. So for any new fans out there, you’ll find plen­ty of mate­r­i­al to get stuck into.
