Talk about getting off to a slow start. But that is precisely what this Stirling-based quartet do.
Lead single ‘I Can’t Wake You’ barely makes it out of the traps, a sleepy, beautifully-paced piece of slowcore – a genre defined by Minnesotan duo Low.
‘Merry Dancers on TV’ is a positive riot by comparison, dreamy slide guitar and nicely blended vocals from frontman McAll and Amy Campbell.
Largely a brooding instrumental, ‘Altona’ takes all the elements of what’s gone before, with a whispered “It’s ok, it’s alright”.
Hard to define, there’s the feel of folk legend’s Bert Jansch’s fingerstyle guitar on ‘Weave Of The World’, but closing track ‘Weicha’ offers a beautiful, timeless headphone moment to wind down an already chilled collection.
‘Neither Is, Or Ever Was’ is out now. This article originally appeared in the Blackpool Gazette.
