8/10 Mike Staff review, 24 April 2014

This week's offering from Bella Union is the second album by New Zealand trio Tiny Ruins, who peddle a gentle folk-pop sound led by silky-voiced Hollie Fullbrook. It's beautiful, relaxing fare, with her sleepy but clear delivery and thoughtful lyricism shining through in a collection of delicately structured songs.

I've had the rare luxury of giving this album a couple of listens prior to writing, and I have to say that third track 'Chainmail Maker' is a clear stand-out at this early point, the sultry but infectious vocal hook caught in an understated little plod with a whispering organ playing next-door, it's like Jose Gonzalez covering Sparklehorse's 'Most Beautiful Widow in Town' with that lady from The xx singing. The hushed loveliness of it all keeps reminding me of Ella Guru too, remember them?

Tiny Ruins give me that same feeling that everyone is trying to play more quietly than everyone else. This is lovely; warm and shuffly indie folk with an intimate but unintrusive aesthetic.
