Mandolin Orange Share Video for "Time We Made Time"

Mandolin Orange have shared the video for “Time We Made Time,” the first single off their recently announced sixth studio album Tides of a Teardrop, out Feb. 1, 2019, on Yep Roc.

The video focuses in on the band, highlighting Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz’s instrumental interplay. The song is a gentle, cascading bluegrass track that swirls around the grounding force of lead singer Marlin’s hurting baritone. Reverbed guitar, soaring violin and muted acoustics combine into a tide of bluegrass beauty, and the song rolls gently onward, ebbing and flowing between emotional crests.

The heartache of “Time We Made Time” is not a poetic abstraction. “I was in a particularly self-destructive mindset when this song came around,” Marlin said in a statement. “The loss of my Mom had manifested itself in many fatalistic forms and the writing of this song was an acknowledgement of that. The use of a metaphor served more as a journey than a tool.”
