Strike The Colours
STRIKE THE COLOURS
The Face That Sunk a Thousand Ships (Deadlight)
As a collaborator with everyone from Arab Strap to Idlewild and Malcolm Middleton, Jenny Reeve’s myriad musical talents have graced many a record to fine effect over the last few years.

Or rather mini-album debut, being that it rather frustratingly only features a fleeting six tracks. All of which are thoroughly alluring things: spectral, melodious indie folk whispers, wrapped in country-tinged strings and chiming piano. A good record only half realised, or just a glimpse of what’s to come? Here’s to the finding out.
