Earlier this month they released their latest LP, the six track, Tea Tree.
An album marked by harmonies which swim through the ears akin to a school of fish in ever changing shapes and flows leaving the listener enraptured by the hypnotic melodies. It is unsurprising that Only The Reign can regularly be caught in live performance with an ever growing audience and a delight they are able to find time to put together recorded material for those of us not within reach of their gigs.
By way of an introduction to a duo I look forward to hearing more from in short order – the second song on the album – I Am.
The strength of their songs is counter-intuitively the fragility, as once again evidenced in the latest song to surface Filling In The Space, which is marked by the vocal harmonies that give the track an ethereal presence as it drifts quietly through the room.
The English acoustic folk creator John Smith releases the LP Headlong on the 30th.
Within the past three hours Living In Disgrace from the forthcoming album surfaced.
Revealing music that reflects of the realities of life, yet always finding light in moments of bittersweet reflection – Living In Disgrace narrates of the importance of relationships over adversity – resultingly from a despondent moment is a perspective that the frippery of possession pales in to insignificance when weighed against the potential of unconscionable loss and through the dark cloud rises a composition of thoughtful tenderness.
