basin rock continue their winning streak by championing this exceptional ep of soulful folk.

Finding a way to balance bright pop melodies with a drifting sense of melancholy that can’t be placed, Samuels made the most of a bad year, writing the EP as a reaction to her long-term relationship falling apart. More than just skin-and-bone, the songs here are comprised of lap steel, clarinet, Juno analog synthesisers, and more, and this rich instrumentation provides a swaying and elegant back-drop which helps bring Samuel’s stories beautifully to life. Johanna Samuels is fourth signing to Basin Rock, a relatively new label based in the Lancashire / Yorkshire border town of Todmorden) that has released albums by Julie Byrne, Nadia Reid and Jim Ghedi.
