Oh, this is nice. I mean it’s a beautiful little EP, this new 'Outside' record from Molly Linen. Featuring 5 lulling songs as beautiful as the photo of a lake / loch on the sleeve, this record importantly showcases the pitch-perfect vocals and melodic guitar lines of Molly herself. Molly Molly Molly. I do like that name. My girlfriend’s mum’s neighbour’s cat is called Molly. And of course so was Nick Drake’s mum, who was an influence. Or was it Nick himself? Well, it’s all connected.
I like these songs... I like these songs a whole lot. A songwriter from the West Midlands, our electric guitarist made the move to Scotland and it seems it was a wise move indeed. Five gorgeous, tranquil songs that sometimes remind me of indie darlings of yore, the Sundays (‘Outside’) albeit briefly. Songs full of autumnal sunshine. The drummer from C Duncan’s band gently pushes things along and that gorgeous guitar keeps chiming harmoniously on, with Linen's clarion voice keeping us companion throughout. Very good indeed.
