Big Leaves : Fine

Our rating:

This will soundtrack the laziness nicely. A perfect summer record...

Another lovely offering from the band who seem to release a single every other week. And call us xenophobic but it’s something of a relief to discover this is sung in English after the band’s Welsh-language debut album, ‘Pwy Sy’n Galw?’, of a couple of months ago. It sounds like The Beach Boys might if they’d swapped the surf for the Welsh mountains, like Gorky‘s sweetly singing nursery rhymes and playing glockenspiel. If you’re finishing exams and hoping for sun in the next few months, or planning hazy afternoons drinking outside that become hazier evenings, this will soundtrack the laziness nicely. A perfect summer record.
