Inheriting the legacy of one of British folk's most revered families, it took a long time for Marry to step centre stage. David had been struck by the character and warmth of Marry's singing It was earthy, dreamlike, warm, powerful and jagged. It had the capacity to be both melancholic and joyful, and could tell a story - of course Marry Waterson could tell a story! The match made, Marry & David entered into an eager musical correspondence by email and phone. Says David of the writing process, What was coming back from Marry convinced me that we were on the right path. I felt a more tonal, but still dreamlike, surreal and at times dark sound was emerging. It was fascinating and exciting sending ideas and waiting to hear what came back. Marry was interpreting the pieces beautifully. I felt we were working almost telepathically at times.
Perfectly balances traditional & contemporary [folk]echoes of Nick Drake, Vashti Bunyan and Sandy Denny while Woolgathering Girl is more reminiscent of latter-day Kate Bush. ****METRO
A gorgeously simple and direct recordholds up a light to the blackest of winter nights. ****Q MAGAZINE
