(United Kingdom - Import)
2013 EP from the critically-lauded Indie septet. Following on from their critically acclaimed New Moore Island' EP, The Mariner's Children return their Sycamore EP, as devastating and as poignantly beautiful as their last. Hinging on the themes of love and death, songwriter Benedict Rubinstein explores the relationships between these experiences and how both can distort logic. The Mariner's Children include members of Peggy Sue, Laura Marling, Sons of Noel And Adrian, Alessi's Ark, and Eyes & No Eyes. Drawing inspiration from Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear)'s approach to production, Angels of Light, and Pentangle amongst others, their music has, at the same time, all the immense instrumentation of Arcade Fire and the subtlety of the likes of Iron & Wine and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.
