This is where I challenge pre-conceived standards again and point out how unfortunate comparisons can be.
'A British Civil Wars' I was told. Which is a poor start as I'd consider Civil Wars to be one of the most over-rated, tedious, insipid acts of the last few years. Mystifyingly credible based on very little evidence of real talent. The front page of theblackfeathers.com holds a better call; "The Black Feathers could well be Britain’s answer to Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings" says Flying Shoes.
High praise. High, high praise. And thoroughly deserved.
The harmonies are immaculate, the melody sumptuous, the guitar work exquisite and the song simple, sweet and soft.
The video's heartbreaking.
Way, way better than the Civil Wars.
