Rising Appalachia‘s “Thank You Very Much” is an uplifting anthem, an homage to gratitude, and an expression of human experience. Sisters Leah Song and Chloe Smith, the constituents of Rising Appalachia, released this song seemingly out of the blue, but that has only deepened its impact since release. The song swirls in a rhythmic, entrancing manner that feels like a manifestation of reflection and contentment. Their song comes on unassumingly and grows patiently before fading away, coming and going like an epiphany of comforting truth.
“It moved into a wider place of gratitude…into a song that speaks as an anthem for us, to the so many radical and wild humans who have stepped in and helped make this music soar, and to the long road that we all walk together towards home. It is a testimony to the simple power of appreciation,” Leah Song says about the song’s creation and development. Coupled with the new release is the announcement of a brief fall tour that will find the duo performing in Appalachia and Florida. Listen to “Thank You Very Much” below.
