Haux, who just wrapped up his debut headlining tour this past Spring after melting us with poignant stirring dream folk and electronica on songs like breakout single Touch, has returned with a new song Cologne. If there really were a fragrance fashioned after Haux’s allure, it would have to be smoky and velutinous, with many layers of aroma whose fine tendrils reach out to intertwine with the micro fibers of the heart. But it’s not that sort of “cologne” that inspired Haux on his atmospheric billowing aria, but a place I’ve yet to visit. Cologne drips with remorse and sorrow, longing and sorrow. 

Speaking of the new release, Woodson himself explains: “I’ve realized there are so many places I haven’t seen in the world, so many faces that seem so familiar and yet somehow so far away. I try to imagine their lives and how they differ from my own. I know I’ll never really know, but there’s something about not knowing that gives me comfort and keeps me eager to see more people and places. There was a certain magic about Cologne. It struck me as a place that I might’ve had another life in if I hadn’t lived the life I have. When I was back home, off tour, I remembered that feeling and tried to imagine a life there and the story of what might have been”. Haux will be playing a special NYC show on November 19th at Park Church Co-op, where he’ll be joined by a string section for a sure to be immensely moving and memorable experience.
