8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 15 October 2009
The kittiwakes are three singer/songwriters from the south of England. 'Lofoten Calling' is almost a concept album based on the ancient viking culture of the Lofoten islands situated in the north western archipelago in arctic Norway. The record was conceived and written by Kate Denny (sings and strings) after a visit to this strange area of the world. As you can well imagine 'Lofoten Calling' explores the traditions employed in sea shanties as well as folk music of both Norway and the UK. The three part vocal harmonies are as enchanting as you'd expect and the arrangements throw up cheeky variations on traditional folk themes. The playing is sterling with accordians, violins, acoustic guitars, pianos, mandolins and octave mandola all making an appearance. This'll be a big hit with the Static Caravan/Midwich (who are responsible for the release) crowd and will no doubt surprise and impress on first listen.
