short players (Scottish) Single review


Raveloe is the latest signing from the mighty Olive Grove Records, who have always had an ear for the next thing.

The band behind this five track EP is fronted by Glasgow-based Kim Grant, using other musicians on the different tracks. She exhibits a subtlety and maturity on these stripped-back songs, reminiscent maybe of Cowboy Junkies but also with a very original bent.

Highlights are probably first track ‘Abalone’ and the latter ‘Sunday Service’, both of which blend Kim’s breathy but memorable vocals with some lovely guitar flourishes and quiet but necessary backbeats.

Ones to watch in 2021 and another great Olive Grove discovery!
