The Cabin Project, a Portland-based orchestral indie group, has dropped the second of two singles from their upcoming album, Unfolded, which is set to be released June 24. Like their name suggests, the band’s sound is reminiscent of the kind of intimate space created by artists like Bon Iver. Throw is a sweeping, anthemic combination of the trio’s skillful string sections and three-part harmonies. The group uses traditional orchestral and choral methods to create a track that is inexplicably modern, heavy, and pop at the same time.
“There is nothing linear about this song,” says singer Katie Sawicki. “The words remind us that the many pieces or memories of the life of a relationship don’t always line up. Arrangement-wise, we gutted this song over and over again and ultimately ended up with something that really represents that idea.”
