Premiere: The Crescent Sky Release New Single 'Out Is Through'



The new single “Out is Through” from Vancouver-based The Crescent Sky has been released


Thoughtfully crafted arrangements support their lyrics that describe the tension of confrontation all while rooted in hope, a sentiment in the foreground of everything they do.


Since forming in 2018, The Crescent Sky continues to gain recognition for their music, and have performed at numerous festivals and venues across the province and showcased internationally.


They released their debut album “Wonder” in 2020 which is a representation of their versatility and ambition as emerging artists. They received the 2018 Abbotsford Arts Council Emerging Artist Award, and placed in the top 100 of CBC's Canada-wide Searchlight contest in 2019.


The Crescent Sky is a four person indie-folk band from BC that creates music with rich soaring vocal harmonies and dynamic instrumentation. The band includes two couples: Anna Luth (vocals/percussion/guitar) and Regan Luth (vocals/violin/mandolin), and Anna Ratzlaff (vocals/cello/piano) and Jason Ratzlaff (vocals/guitar/bass). They are individually strong songwriters, and together they compose indie-folk music with string melodies, whimsical synths and rhythmic guitar lines.


Of the new single the band said, "Out is Through is a song that explores the emotional landscape of a moment of conflict in a relationship. We wanted to capture the tension of confrontation with the progression of the song, and the feeling of mustering the courage to move towards resolution."


Drawing on shared influences like The Staves, Bon Iver and Fleetwood Mac, The Crescent Sky places collaboration at the centre of their music which allows each member to equally shape the process. Their latest single “Out is Through” was recorded and produced by Jonathan Anderson (Jordan Klassen, Ocie Elliot) and explores the emotional landscape of a moment of conflict in a relationship. Simultaneously pensive and optimistic, their honest lyrics flow from intimate confessions to declarations in four-part harmony. Thoughtfully crafted arrangements support their vocally-driven songs that describe a search for hope, a sentiment in the foreground of everything they do.


Since forming in 2018, this indie-folk band continues to prove they are here to stay. They performed at CBC’s Nooners Concert Series, received the 2018 Abbotsford Arts Council Emerging Artist Award, and placed in the top 100 of CBC's Canada-wide Searchlight contest in 2019. They released their debut album “Wonder” in 2020 that explores themes of personal growth, and demonstrates the band’s versatility and ambition as emerging artists in Canada’s music scene. In 2021, The Crescent Sky performed at the Harrison Festival of the Arts (BC) and Pigeon Lake Music Festival (AB), and have showcased internationally through Folk Alliance International and the Folk Music Ontario Conference. The Crescent Sky continues to gain recognition for their music, and have performed at numerous festivals and venues across the province.
