2012-04-09This band is akin to Mumford and Sons and The Fleet Foxes--emotionally delivered harmony-drenched lyrics with a quiet but steady build up (in the first two songs) or a gentle and persistent refrain (in the last two songs). Lead singer/songwriter Peter Liddle is a Brit, but raised in Norway; he found some musical mates in London and says the band plays folk music with a background of post-punk and hardcore. This ain't upbeat music--it is brooding and contemplative, as from the title track: "I was prepared to love you/And never expect anything of you/There’s no patron saint of silent restraint/Baby, there aint no sword in our lake/Just a funeral wake." Michael J. 04/12 F-Indie (Harmony)
