SadBlackLab is an alternative folk trio based in central Kentucky. The arrangement, an amalgam of guitarist/vocalist Greg McIntosh, violinist/vocalist Emily Miller, bassist Cody Hiatt, and multi-instrumentalist Zoë Blackwell (flute, sax, keys, and accordion). Overall, the music is described as being very "non-derivative", recalling nostalgic references from nineties rock but with a modern twist of multi-genre instrumentation. The sound consists of rhythmic finger-style guitar, dark and melodic vocals, bold colors and fluid delivery from keys, winds, and strings, and driving, experimental bass. The music seamlessly blends between moments of beautiful chaos and syncopated intensity, inviting the listener into the narrative sound space of SadBlackLab.
