 Like the rest of Lydia Luce’s upcoming EP, Garden Songs, “Vow” is framed by lush, organic tones, breathtaking string arrangements, and soothing, otherworldly melodies. But “Vow,” by nature, is closer to her heart—a meditation on what it meant to decide to spend the rest of her life with her partner. As with the rest of Garden Songs, “Vow” was written at an artist retreat on Orcas Island, a tiny destination of some 57 square miles off the coast of Washington state known for vistas of water, forest, rocks, beaches, and blue skies—all of which are reflected flawlessly in the music. It was the first writing Luce had done since her 2021 album, Dark River.
