"Strange Country" is folk music at its finest, and deserves to be heard.
Emmanuel Elone: "Strange Country" is simply excellent folk music. The intricate guitar playing perfectly matches the female vocals, and the lyrics are great as well. The only off-putting aspect of this song is that Kacy and Clayton clearly have no uniquely defined sound, instead copying almost directly from '60s and early '70s folk singers like Bob Dylan, Donovan, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, and even a hint of some acoustic Led Zeppelin. Nevertheless, "Strange Country" is folk music at its finest, and deserves to be heard. [8/10]
Chris Ingalls: It's folk, it's a little bit country, but it sure is an odd little song. Thorny fingerpicking guitar is the only instrument accompanying the beautiful vocals, but the guitar's odd, eloquent simplicity is more than enough. The elastic tempo, which sort of bends and floats a bit during the chorus, prevents the song from being a boot-stomping country singalong, and that's totally fine. This kind of music needs more idiosyncratic artists. [8/10]
Chad Miller: The vocals are pretty good, and the tune is really breezy and enjoyable. The country-folk style was executed nicely, and the guitar and vocals play off of each other really well. The reverb section was a nice twist as well, and the video is perfectly wacky too. [7/10]
