Into The Trees
Kathryn Bint follows her perfectly formed debut Until (2008) with an album (10 tracks) that reveals her remarkable range as a musician and songwriter. Her tender vocals still send husky shivers down the spine, but Into The Trees is so much more than beautiful folk songs. Produced by Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Into The Trees weaves a fabric of different sounds, united by Bint’s elegiac voice and strong storytelling. Radiohead's Colin Greenwood lends the album his bass powers, and tracks like Paper Planes and I Know rock with a swagger that surprises and yet fits perfectly with the whole. The musicianship of Scowcroft and Jamieson is on full display as the record moves deftly from the acoustic warmth of ‘Hold You Down’ to the sunshine pop of Simmer Down Simmer to the dreamy synth of final track Synthesizer. Hebden’s touch is a delicate one; there is a modesty and clarity to these songs that speaks to the confidence and judgment of those involved. If You Ask is so simple and clean that no extra seasoning is required.
