Stornoway’s debut album Beachcoomber’s Windowsill was one of 2010’s quieter pleasantries. Very polite, keen not to put wrong and flawless with its pleases and thank yous.
Their return, is much the same. ‘Knock Me On The Head’ features the same gentle acoustic guitars, rolling drums and a bright chorus that made the afformentioned debut such delight.
It’s taken from their upcoming second album, Tales From Terra Firma, which is out on the 11th March on 4AD.
“The title of the album conjures up for me, the romantic notion of an adventurer, exploring new lands and reporting on his experiences. Discovering what it is to be human and an enthusiasm for adventure, which I feel is true of me.” says singer Brian Briggs.
