An eleven track album (available on bandcamp) of voluminous progressive psychedelia filtered through the lens of acoustic guitar and hazy vocal leaving the audience with a sense of both timelessness and weightlessness and it takes the mind some little while to readjust to normality after ingesting the approximately fifty one minutes run time of The Gentle Northern Wind.

The River Will Flow Again is the third track.

A six track release, which fills the room with slowly revolving electronica and guitar, with a submerged vocal enticing the audience – and minds of diving headlong in to the tightly packed petals of a Carnation to explore each fold in greater detail.

The songs each offer a different angle of dappled shadow which hold the attention, much like a hummingbird studiously supping nectar from delicate, complex, yet sweetly scented flowers.

Saturday is the opening track.

Somewhat reminiscent of mid ’90s club electrosynth the newest track By Your Side, which was released as a stand alone single on the 30th of November, adds a luxurious blanket of soft felt that wraps around the listener with the subsumed soundtrack, as though suspended on fine silk borne by a soft breeze, melting even the most fractious moment in to one of gentle teasing.

Yesterday, from a forthcoming EP, the track Creep In The Door was released as a standalone single (available on bandcamp).

A very different mood to the rock influenced track Tell Me Why, previously featuredCreep In The Door is an extended free-form jazz number that has an extemporised air in to which a funky-soul swagger is pitched giving the composition an easy gait alongside the more angular structures of the jazz tinctures and resulting in a track of multiple dimensions and tempo.

Today a new song surfaced, which will be on the album – THE GYPSY JOKER.

Drawing deeply from the well of brit-blues THE GYPSY JOKER finds the listener searching the wardrobe for a faded jeans jacket and pin-button badges along with air guitar to take up position and headbang away with just over four and half minutes track.
