9/10 Clinton Staff review, 22 July 2011
Okay, first thing's first - I don't like the name. Too much like Everest the double glazing people. But try as I might, that is the only negative thing I can say about this fabulous single. The main track 'Paper Trumpets' is a lovely haunting lullaby of a tune with exquisite picked acoustic guitar and excellent vocals which burst into a stunning chorus of male and female vocals layered on top of one another. Although it sounds nothing like them structurally, I'm reminded of Low in the quiet sparse sounds and almost church-like vocals. The B side starts with brass band like soft horns - and actually instrumentally that's all there is to support the vocals. A brave move but one which completely fits with the material. Less is more, etc. These are sure to be the best thing to come out of Margate since...erm...since...and will appeal to fans of Sufjan Stevens, Peter Broderick. Recommended.
