Visiting band explores dark side of songwriting

April 27, 2010

A Brooklyn-based sextet will travel outside the city, bringing with it a sound that fits the foothills of Appalachia better than the borough’s brownstone houses and apartment buildings.

Yarn will play at 9:30 p.m. tomorrow at Jackie O’s Pub and Brewery, 24 W. Union St., to promote its new album, Come On In, which will be released Tuesday.

The band’s third album features melancholy lyrics about the struggles of life rather than the peaks, said Blake Christiana, the main songwriter and lead singer.

“It’s a lot easier to write when you’re a little down than when you’re happy because when you’re happy, you’re gonna be OK, so you don’t have a whole lot to say,” Christiana said.
