Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World
YOU ARE THE COSMOS
a welcome reissue of the band's 2007 powerful & psychedelic debut that has a constant feeling of togetherness - a trippy mixture of instrumental & vocal tracks drenched in folky sonics.
“Any band who sings about caterpillars, the Brecon Beacons and monsters called Yongy Bongy Bo risk, being so quirky they'd leave you reaching for a Misty's Big Adventure CD for respite. Yes the first album proper from these acoustic folk oddballs might suggest its makers bed down in a Glasto tepee every night, tucked in by a woodlan pixie, but to dismiss Cardiff's SHS as quirk over substance would be idiotic. Over Beta Band‐ish acoustics and cloudy chants , electro‐squiggles and instruments we couldn't even begin to name jiggle and hop, all neon highlighting the campfire brilliance of SHS's choruses. Yongy Bongy who?” Jamie Fullerton, NME, 2007.
