Rising stars on the English acoustic scene, earning 2015’s Best Duo award from the BBC Folk Awards, Clark and Walker’s new ep features a handful of the best tracks from their small catalogue, rearranged anew.

‘Through The Clouds’ is meant as an introduction to the duo; in addition to ‘Silverline’ it features a new, stripped-down version of ‘Done’ (ballads on opposite sides of love and loneliness), an alternate mix of the spooky Shirley Collins cover ‘Hares On The Mountain’ and the original album version of ‘The Tangled Tree’, a brilliant showcase of Clarke’s vocal range and expression. “hauntingly beautiful … a crisper, instrumentally minimal take on some of the most beloved tunes in the duo’s repertoire …emotionally perceptive and down-to-earth” – 8/10 pop matters
