7/10 Clinton Staff review, 23 March 2017

This is a bit twee  - but if you like Joanna Newsome you'll be in some kind of heaven here. Emma Gatrill plays the harp and and sings in the same kind of girly voice with clipped vowels. It's lovely but perhaps a little too studied to be truly original. I do wish Gatrill would find her own singing style but that aside it's rolling and cascading folk music with excellently placed arrangements of soft horns and luscious strings, the songs drift and waft eschewing verse/chorus structure for long trails of sound driven forward by evocatively plucked guitar that sometimes burst into quite aggressive sections with percussive strings.

It's magical sounding but not quite hitting the spot in the same way as this week's A Lilac Decline record which truly is transcendental.
