Heather Trost’s Petrichor Album Is A Psychedelic Wanderlust & Go-To Listen Of 2020

by BUST Magazine

Petrichor is singer/songwriter/violinist (and one-half of folk duo A Hawk and a Hacksaw) Heather Trost’s second solo album. Trost makes good use of these seven tracks, exemplifying her strong sense of journey and dynamic composition. Although written in 2019, the album is prescient of the current collective experience. Breezy, psychedelic opener “Let It In” declares, “Make the space for yourself/For others/We may not have the chance again.” Meanwhile, “Tracks to Nowhere” is dulcet heartache—a single guitar and layers of harmonies build with swinging strings and a doo-wop drum groove. Not only evocative and prophetic, Petrichor is also heartfelt and full of light, closing with “Sunrise,” and the song’s reprise, “Find the time/Resist the urge to turn away.” – Carlee Mcmanus
