We Aeronauts

This is a perfect tone for this sunny Sunday afternoon – lilting vocal and a gentle wash of music to keep the mind engaged. Folk, is a difficult arena for me to encapsulate as it isn’t my natural hunting ground, but there are times when bands just grab me by the neck and We Aeronauts are one of them.

Superbly crafted pieces of music are lifted high by the very quietness of the music, which seeps through the material, demanding the musicians to play each note precisely as envisioned and the vocal pitch spot-on, the whole combines with a powerful embrace.

The diversity of instruments are used with assurance, each connecting well and not wandering off to distant corners.

All in all We Aeronauts are deserving of some serious consideration by those who enjoy music, as they add much to the seeds of creativity.
