Nancy Elizabeth - "Feet of Courage" (video)

by Tyler Gould

7 October 2009

 

“Feet of Courage”, the first single from Nancy Elizabeth’s Wrought Iron, has a very unassuming way of building on itself. The drummer starts off with a sultry beat supporting hypnotic looped vocals, and by the time the song was coming to a close I was enjoying a veritable a cascade of sweet, simple melodies draped over that same beat. A cascade, I tell you! Marissa Nadler might be the closest comparison, but, to make a totally not-insane analogy, Elizabeth is the Mage to Nadler’s Warlock: the aesthetic difference, for this particular song, anyway, is the difference between casting (Elizabeth) and channeling (Nadler). Nadler is possessed by some woozy musical spirit, while “Feet of Courage” is a tool to possess others. This all makes sense to somebody. Nancy Elizabeth joins Efterklang on some U.K. shows later this month, and heads to Italy in November.
