Good Old War - My Own Sinking Ship

Good Old War is a trio that plays folky pop music.  Their songs are usually focused on an acoustic guitar and harmonies.  The type of music that they play seems to be a dying genre.  It isn't quite folk, yet it also isn't pop.  The balance between the two genres works perfectly.  They just released a new song from their next record, and it's definitely a good sign for fans of the band's unique sound.

"My Own Sinking Ship" is the first single from the band's upcoming album.  The song has a great melody, just like their previous hits such as "Coney Island"  This song is a bit more mellow than the upbeat "Coney Island". The lower vibe doesn't make it any less of a song.  "My Own Sinking Ship" is such a refreshing sound for the music industry.

The band is releasing their self-titled sophomore album on June 1st.  You can download this new song for free, here.  I would definitely check it out.  It doesn't matter if you don't like acoustic based music.  This song is contagious enough to attract listeners of every genre.
