The four-piece from Birmingham with the new work confirms its ideal size, building of long tracks and tones lysergic where much counts performed. The guitar work of David and Sophie Day , along with the rhythm section and slow muscle of Jake Mason (drums) and Dan Burchmore (bass), constitute the essence of the songs, alternating moments of granite in an acid psychedelia that looks convinced to the 70s. This is how the episodes of the platter (we are particularly representative of the opener "Bricket Wood Coven" and the title track) are directed towards the tunnel at times elusive and kaleidoscopic, where the listener literally gets lost.
We said that music is the impact that overwhelming, but it is really effective voice of Sophie, who intervenes with his tone grim and powerful as if it were an instrument, only and only when the pieces require it, to then leave ample space the overlap of the melodies smoky. "Awakening The Forest" flowing very well and therefore highlights the quality of a band that probably does not invent anything on the practical side but it has a competitive sogwriting which may in fact make an interesting discovery for fans of the genre, who will enjoy this work due to the increased visibility offered to the group by the recent deal with Napalm Records .
