Connecticut-based band Birds Over Arkansas have released a new song with a crisp, harmonious American roots foundation layered with progressive, subtly unorthodox structures and historically-based spiritual themes. Formed in 2011, Birds Over Arkansas consists of Scott Haskitt (guitar, lead vocals), Laura Hartshorn (keyboards/vocals), John Mondick (guitar/mandolin/vocals), and Ryan Berg (drums/percussion).
According to lead singer Scott Haskitt, “So Much Sky” is about “being too often consumed by life's bigger picture, and, consequently, losing sight of its finer details.” While the chorus lyrics juxtapose the act of sky-gazing with that of internal self-reflection, the verses tell the story of the struggles of Reinhold Rudenberg, a scientist and inventor who was in part responsible for the development of the electron microscope.
