Harmony Woods Graceful Rage

by Walter Price

‘New’ may be a slight misnomer when it comes to the vastly dynamic 2021 album ‘Graceful Rage’ by Philly indie outfit Harmony Woods, but here we are. Guided by the visions and concerns of vocalist/songwriter Sofia Verbilla, this unsung 8-track set is more than aptly titled. With all its lyrical depths, there’s certainly plenty of seeping temper oozing from each and every song.

Verbilla’s vocal agility is more often than not offset by a pounding crunch that’ll keep you on edge, which is kinda the point throughout. And its zeitgeist storylines are certainly the kind of soundtrack these ever trying times are aching for. Tracks like its namesake, “Graceful Rage”, the Lilith Fair era-esque “Rittenhouse”, the pointed powers of “God’s Gift to Women”, and The Cranberries styled “Good Luck Rd.”, all have inedible messages and are primed to start conversations. All in all, this album, its mastermind, and the potent messaging are powerfully important.

Hey, if your fave playlists are stocked with tracks by Pom Pom Squad, Skating Polly, and/or Destroy Boys, then Harmony Woods’ “Graceful Rage” is gonna feel right at home. You can stream it in full as well as witness one of the most brilliantly crafted music videos, the Adam Peditto-directed stunner, here at the GTC.
