"A Good Cafe on St. George Street" sketches lovely scenes in front of the listener showing storytelling skills nearly to rival Johnny Flynn; melodic lullabies with glittering riffs which meander over trumpets, electric keyboard, bass, french horns and drums. It would be easy enough to lump them into the 'alt-folk' genre but there is more to them that that- their songs sound like Noah and the Whale's "Mary" or Laura Marlings "Shine" but the use of trumpets and the downplaying of the acoustic guitar at times means they take on a new edge and a more lo-fi sound. Best song "A Few Words of Farewell" is magic and melancholy affair and possibly the slowest of their offerings; it's focus relies more on the lyrics than musical content here but it works well ("A blank space where the fragments lay") and the vocal harmonies take over.
Defiantly goose bump inducing and possibly tear reducing they play on human emotions with not only their lyrics but with their pretty-pop music too. Lovely.
