Whenever I Try To Leave

Falk Recordings
Tenth Circle label boss Greg Sawyer steps behind the software on this polished three-tracker for Bristol's Falk Recordings. With its layered, melancholy pianos, 'A Fading Glance' is a lovely swelling thing, gorgeously understated. 'Mayflies' is brimming with moody, building atmospherics, minor chord pads and Burial-esque snatches of vocal. 'Whenever I Try To Leave' winds it up, a wash of echoing percussion, deep, unctuous vibrations and gently soothing pianos chords. This could lead Sawyer somewhere special.
