North Sea Radio Orchestra
The End of Chimes EP Oof! Records (7")

Article written by Paul M - May 27, 2007

Not one for the hedonistic chuff monkeys giving it large on Es and, er, Js (memo to self do some research on drugs sometime), this is gentle, lush and frankly beguiling English chamber pop folk. The influences listed will not feature in the credits of your average skinny drainpipe clad bandís releases but then most acts donít feature wind instruments or set their music to the poems of Longfellow. Thereís a variety to the four tracks on this EP, from the brow soothing sweetness and lifting harmonies of Chimes to the raggle taggle hey-nonny-nonny of Tides but a common feature is the relaxed, smiling listener. Nice.
