London-based Erland & The Carnival return with a second album that’s darkly poppy and more direct than their eponymous debut.
Recorded in the bowels of a ship moored on the Thames, the band’s influences on ‘Nightingale’ range from folk music to English art (first single ‘Map Of An Englishman’ was inspired by Grayson Perry’s work of the same name) to ancient Egypt.
Having garnered high praise with their debut longplayer (Paul Weller named it his ‘Album of 2010’), ‘Nightingale’ maintains its predecessor’s folk sensibility but with an electronic twist, punctuated by moments of sweet pop.
Available on CD, digital download and limited edition heavyweight vinyl - only 250 copies for the UK and Eire - which also includes a download code.
