we're becoming dangerously besotted with this visionary creative force, whose experimental twist on atmospheric folk-rock is a sound to behold.


The third album from the Scottish kosmiche quartet is a glorious compendium of haunted disco hallelujahs, mercurial krautrock chorales, cosmic pop adagios and euphoric, resilient, anthems. ‘The Weight of the Sun’ sees principal songwriters Emily Scott and Rob St John further their warm, esoteric field studies with Pete Harvey and Joe Smillie, as previously reconnoitred on ‘Swell To Great’ (2016) and ‘Welcome Strangers’ (2018). 
“The exact point where Fairport Convention meet Jim O’Rourke at a remote Scottish railway station” - Tim Burgess, “Melancholic magic… recalls Johnny Marr’s hazier reveries and the febrile, electrified folk of Polly Harvey’s 'Let England Shake'” - UNCUT
