“In spite of all that we achieved back in the day the feeling of being the underdog has never quite left me.”
Where The Wild Things Grow, the new album–produced by RickMcNamara – is one of the natural wonders of the world. You should be aware i’m including recordings by Nick Drake, Teenage Fanclub and Tim Buckley. Also the Great Wall Of China, The Leaning Tower of Pisa and food delivery services of middle England. So effortlessly beguiling is the album, you might flick through your collection to check whether these songs have been knocking about your house for years. Of course, this is not the case. But Starsailor have been releasing ever-increasingly brilliant records for so long now, that we should be easily forgiven such folly–but herein lies a tale.
