6/10 Staff review, 19 August 2015

Small Feet do the bold fragile feelings thing well on ‘From Far Enough Away Everything Sounds Like The Ocean’ (phew), a record produced to make the whole earth sound like one big encased dome. In actuality, the band only fall into the trap of heightened and faraway drama a la London Grammar occasionally; the rest of their time they’re making a type of frenzied folk rock that seems happy to take the piss of itself: the dozy gang whistles of “All And Everyone” seem to acknowledge the band’s rather pastoral sound and place it in a less self-serious place than the Mumfords of the world.

Simon Stalhamre’s vocal -- which sounds something like a more earnest take on the voice of dude from the Figurines -- cuts through the bold indie rock arrangements on this record, which have been toned to sound like the thick of winter. The guitars sparkle, the drums get brushed against like a foot to snow, but then Stalhamre cuts through with a frightened, wobbling voice. On “Lead Us Through The Night”, a clumsily strummed number rising on a wave of twang, he sounds like Colin Meloy and Chad VanGaalen -- both incredibly assured and more frightened than he’s ever been. His voice lends personality to a record that otherwise would serve as good indie rock muzak. Small Feet aren’t world-beating, but they provide a couple of notes for an old, rarely updated sound. Being heartfelt is a start.
