Lavendine’s Jacy and Jana Ayers have got a lot to sing about in their brand new single “Finding My Way Home,” Underscoring the emotional depth of the piano, guitar, and sizzling harmonization of the instrumentation in the background. The sisters’ vocals are the main attraction in this latest release from the Oklahoman duo.
The acoustic guitar is crisp and melodically unaffected by the percussive urgency that we hear in the second half of the track, and of all the components in the instrumentation, it might just be the most appealing thing about this song. I love the bonding between the keys and the bassline; right from the jump, it creates a harmony that takes our breath away while leaving just enough space in the mix for the beat to create a sense of consistency from start to finish. It’s textured, multilayered, and an all-around cornerstone of the composition.
The arrangement here has a superior production and there isn’t a moment in which it doesn’t make these two players sound like genuine superstars. They’re steadily improving, and from an aesthetic point of view, they’re hitting all the right marks here. If this is how good they can put on a show in the studio, one has to be curious just how much fire they could emit in the right live setting.
I’m really looking forward to hearing more from this band as they continue to grow into their sound and develop an artistic bent that is truly theirs and theirs alone. Lavendine is great at adapting to each and every recording that they attach their moniker to. There’s more good stuff left in the tank from this duo, and I think we’ll have the chance to hear it a lot sooner than later.
