Our Rating:
This EP is a follow up to Mark W. Georgsson's debut album that was produced by Rod Jones from Idlewild. Mark is a Glaswegian with a love of the countryside and playing in the wilds. He also sounds like the sort of artist that would have fit into The Fence Collective.

The album opens with the gently effective Ode To Rannva, and having Googled Rannva I will take a leap of faith that it's about the artist Rannva Kunoy and a nice gentle tribute to her textiles, even while lyrically it's more love gone wrong than artistic tribute, this reminds me of Foals.

Waiting For you opens by stealing a piano flourish from David Bowie before the song gets going properly as a foot stomping plea for the woman, he desires, to reciprocate the feelings he has for her. In the upbeat parts this could almost be a long-lost Junk shop glam classic, it certainly has the potential to be a radio hit.

True Love is a gently persuasive song claiming true love will find you in the end and well if you open yourself up enough it may well do. This has some lovely pedal steel playing and acoustic guitar it almost sounds a bit like Slim Chance.

One Of A Kind the main single is a swirling chamber folk impassioned plea for her to give in and accept he really thinks she's One Of A Kind, that may well appeal to fans of The Beautiful South (in this case that is not an insult!), it's catchy and has cool backing vocals.

Hanging Around has a good quiet loud structure as the tale in the song unfolds and the climaxes signified by the loud parts feel like cool punctuation as he gains inspiration from the object of his endless desire it also shifts into three or four parts like a mini-country folk operetta.

The EP closes with Comes A Time a song seemingly about sailing off into the sunset with waves gently crashing onto the sand style percussion in places along with gentle acoustic guitar and some other adornments before the drummer starts behaving like he's at the Edinburgh Tattoo and things become far more epic a very interesting way to close a cool EP
