Album Notes
"Arran Southall makes what would work nicely as a soundtrack for a documentary on the wildlife of desolate moors, country roads with only the occasional horse and cart disturbing the tranquility, boats drifting off a millpool-calm coastline. Mixing drones - themselves an ancient sound often appropriated by rather more progressive musicians - and decidedly non-’rock’ instruments like concertina and pedal organ, Arran equally draws comparisons with nu-folk artists like King Creosote and soundscapers such as Sigur Ros. Immerse yourself in his world." - Is This Music? (Online Scottish magazine), 4.5 out of 5 stars

"intimately dazzling, understated music... Southall’s intrinsic and touching soft melodies ooze passion and mystique as they wander and weave their way to our ears with a seemingly indefinite end. Upon first listen you’ll stop dead in your tracks, entranced by the sublime structure of the tunes. The hushed vocals breed such a profound tranquility that you wouldn’t be blamed for taking a seat as Southall lulls you into his delicate world" - Knox Road (music blog)
