“Cold Light” reaches into the heart of the English tradition and brings to life old tunes from the archives, alongside instrumental compositions and newly written songs. The album’s refined arrangements feature intricate subtleties that build from a simple riff to cascading rhythms, stunning harmonies and dramatic crescendos.
This is the very essence of the music; allowing the past to inspire the future.
