Meadowlark: Paraffin EP

review singles x1 cong

 

Meadowlark’s last EP Dual is one of our favourite releases in the 15 years we’ve been writing reviews.

It’s lovely, mainly because of Kate McGill’s voice, but her bandmate Daniel Broadley’s minimalistic guitar and synth arrangements complement her rather elfin vocals to perfection. They produce nuanced and textured sparse tunes, to which the word shimmering could be applied.

As with Dual, this new EP has more tracks than songs, in this case only two songs but three extra remixes. It’s all good. We would advise you to go and buy both EPs now but we can see that we love Meadowlark somewhat irrationally. Paraffin is released via Believe Recordings.

It’s up to you if you buy it or not, but it will make your life better and the world will be a happier place.
