Jun 13, 2019

LISTEN: Jesse Terry & Alex Wong,

Artists: Jesse Terry & Alex Wong
Hometown: Stonington, Connecticut (Jesse); Nashville, TN (Alex)
Song: “Landfall”
Album: Kivalina

In Their Words: “When we set out to tell this story, we wanted people who listened to the album from beginning to end to feel like they were watching a movie… and we wanted ‘Landfall’ to feel like our establishing shot… As a song, it’s a birds eye view of our own introduction to the story of the village of Kivalina and how climate change was affecting so many in their situation. The chorus came out of our own ignorance of the scope of the issue… who would believe such a crazy thing could be happening right now?” — Alex Wong
