One Little Indian
Back for her eighth studio album, Kathryn Williams is continuing to push the folk boat further downstream by offering a dignified and easy listening sound with the first single to be taken from ‘The Quickening’.
Williams has continued her long term writing collaboration with David Scott for the current album and ‘50 White Lines’ twists tales of life on the road, wistfully gazing at cities gone by with a lazy undertone as she croons: “I can drive through this town and I can vanish.”
It’s all rather nice if it wasn’t for the infernal back chat of the counting male in the back of the mix, slowly making his way up to “50 White Lines” to mar the effective xylophone, vocals and guitar which are ambient enough in themselves to carry you through.
