Randolph’s Leap - Battleships & Kettle Chips

(Olive Grove)

Combining Arab Strap’s musical depth and Zoey Van Goey’s gleeful pop, this EP is a Christmas stocking filler for indie-folk fans. The first release from both Glasgow six-piece and record label, it ranges from the classically styled ‘Going Home’ to the irresistible ‘Undergod’.

The appealing, Stuart Murdoch-alike vocals are refreshingly innocent, while ‘Back to Square One’ is a foot-stomper akin to a twee version of Malcolm Middleton’s ‘We’re All Going to Die’. Laidback and pleasant, it is not a record of ‘tunes’, but one you could have on repeat for days.
