Borrowed Body

Ralph has featured singer/songwriters Chris Tavener and Scott Dean in the last two blogs and to complete the set of three, we're featuring the debut album release by Borrowed Body aka Niall Hill this week. London-based, Niall has put The Rising Sea out via indie record label Screamlite and it's a collection of seven highly listenable, emotive Alt-Folk tracks which are evocative of Nick Drake or on a more contemporary level Bon Iver.

Borrowed Body kicks off the the album in fine style with the meaningful soundscape of Over The Garden Wall. The poignant vocal backed by simple melody is a delight.

This is an album for a balmy night in the garden with the headphones on and a glass of wine in hand. Blissfully unaware of the comings and goings of the world and getting lost as Borrowed Body lulls you with his lush vocal. 

OK - OK that's as muso as I get and you really need to go and grab a copy of the album yourself to see what I mean.

It's as strong a debut release as I've heard in a long time despite of, or in fact due to, it's subtle tones. Ralph will be featuring the excellent Antennas on his Radio KC Indie Show (Sunday 26th June from 5-7pm) in a week's time.
