I recall making references to the seasons on the previous album (Reports of Snow) from the Oxford based musical collaborative Reichenbach Falls who are fronted by Abe Davies (vocals & acoustic guitar) and Jamie Cooper (electric guitar).
Well it seems once again appropriate to touch on the seasonal mood and whether deliberate or not the album release, it’s out on September the 14th, fits perfectly with the recording that plays out like the last days of summer in a beautiful sad way, the majority of the songs presenting themselves like a landscape in soft focus, frayed lead-vocals are accentuated against the nuanced arrangements and the track sequencing works perfectly creating an album that will stay with the long long after the summer fades.
Pre-order the album now via Bandcamp.
