The Dark Sky singers' new single filled me with dread when I cast my eye upon it. It looked proper bleak. Yes I know you can find beauty in bleakness, fuck off and watch American Beauty or Garden State or summat. You know I'm a sensitive guy really. I'm just saying this stuff to mask my own emotional....just kidding! What do you take me for? A baggy trousered ballet enthusiast? Any way, enough bluster, back to the task at hand. The Dark City Singers. And vinyl. Together at last! Title track "The Harrowing" might be one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in ages. It starts with a gently plucked guitar and expands into a lovelorn ballad of fairly epic proportions. The flip side is also almost as wondrous. It has a piano motif and refrain that will melt even the coldest of hearts. Well that's a bold claim I know, but the songs on this record are really beautiful. The vocals sound ace, the musicianship's lush and the whole thing is a folk-style slab of awesome awesomeness. Almost perfect. It gets my vote...right you guys!?!
