dizzyingly beautiful, this is a swelling, incredibly complex and emotive album of carefully constructed chamber pop.

these achingly gorgeous, quietly experimental landscape songs are played on analogue synths, cello, double bass, drums, guitars, a wine-glass orchestra and, at the creaking centre of things, a Victorian pedal harmonium. The band came together in early 2015, when Glasgow songwriter Emily Scott recruited old pals and collaborators Pete Harvey (King Creosote, The Leg), Joe Smillie (Call to Mind) and Rob St. John. if you like laish, the pictish trail and c Duncan, you should be right at home here.
