Intimately exploring the depths of personal grief, ‘Tides Of A Teardrop’ sees Mandolin Orange continue to mark themselves out as the quiet band making a very loud noise in Americana and folk music, with a stunning, slow-burning meditation on love and loss that wraps its arms around the listener in a warm and understanding embrace.

“I think my mother’s passing was almost the genesis of my writing,” says singer-songwriter Andrew Marlin. “That was when I really began to find refuge in writing songs.” His voice emerges clearer than ever, set in sharp relief by the indelible performances of Mandolin Orange’s long-time touring band. Whether it’s the trilling, weighty atmosphere of the allegorical “Wolves” or the Appalachian yearning of the hymn-like “Suspended In Heaven” (written on Mother’s Day), Marlin and Frantz’s vocal and instrumental interplay is as perfect as ever, the instinctual expression of deeply known but unspoken truths. "Marlin’s songs [...] have a well-worn feel that envelops the listener in comfort and understanding asking nothing in return...a delicately handled triumph." 4* - soundblab
