Boomkat Review – April Sounds ep

A welcome monthly arrival, Cannell & Ellis’ series embraces spring on an ‘April Sounds’ volume beautifully light-headed with a changing of the seasons and oscillating pressure fronts.

More explicitly effected than previous month’s outings, the duo’s 4th episode of 2021 features their vocals and strings deftly treated to reverb and delay to probe more expansive and spectral themes after a particularly earthly, nithered volume of ‘March Sounds.’ Everything here feels born again and renewed with light and space, blessed with the tentative promise of a decent harvest this year. 

Hashing Irish and British folk traditions with contemporary experimental urges, the results feel timeless and flow with a natural grace and pacing that speaks to their combined years in their respective fields; Laura Cannell as an eminent improvisor who has worked with Mark Fell and Rhodri Davies, and Ireland’s Kate Ellis bringing decades of experience as a classical cellist who has recorded with The National and Fovea Hex.” BOOMKAT
