    The Brooklyn-based alt-folk trio, Del Water Gap, are releasing a new single tomorrow (October 21st) but we're here to bring you "Vanessa" first. It's a cut from their new EP which is set to drop early next year. The group's founder and lead vocalist, S. Holden Jaffe, wrote this song while renting out a basement room in Reykjavik, Iceland a couple years ago. Del Water Gap also consists of Charles Schlinkert on drums and percussion and William Evans on bass, piano and backup vocals.

    "Vanessa" is full of twangy guitar riffs and steady percussion as Jaffe's vocals are tender and rich in emotion. The song is about falling in love with someone before seeing some deal-breaking flaws in that person a little too late. "Oh no, I think I've fallen in it / Oh no, it isn't any use / Oh well, I shouldve left her sooner." It's a track that's easy on the ears and Jaffe's voice is melancholy and captivates you right from the start.

    Del Water Gap will play a single release show tomorrow (October 21st) at the Berlin in NYC.
