Conceived as the natural third part in an acoustic trilogy, 'Vestiges & Claws' is a(nother) hushed & delicate solo set that forefronts the highly talented guitarist’s compellingly intimate vocal style & intricate playing technique.

it’s often strikingly rhythmic in nature & cohere’s perfectly, with hand claps & taps on the body of his instrument underlining the songs’ mantric rise-&-fall pattern, while elsewhere, over-dubbed guitar parts & multi-tracked vocal harmonies entwine to sweetly immersive effect. his solo persona may have been dormant for 7 years (whilst his Junip band project & various collaborations took priority) but José still sounds incredible & utterly mesmerising.
