Anyone who comes across my reviews regularly will know that I have reached moments of complete singer-songwriter saturation at times over the last year.
So it is a delight to be able to report that the These Resurrections EP by Steve Adey (an Edinburgh based artist, no less) is something that goes against the grain of David Gray wannabes, and instead shows that fragile does not need to mean wimpy, and acoustic does not mean half-assed. he will be releasing a new LP later on this year, but for now, this EP is a gorgeous treat.
The subtlety of Talk Talk circa Spirit Of Eden and the haunted beauty of The Blue Nile circa Hats hang over this five track EP, worth it for closing track ‘Just Wait Til I Get You Home’ alone. I know next to nothing about Steve Adey at this moment in time. I have taken this at face value and been very warmly blown away.
