VELVET & STONE – SINGLE REVIEW

Velvet & Stone – Lay Her Down 
Velvet & Stone - Lay Her Down

Release Date: Out Now

Exeter’s Velvet & Stone are quietly going about the business of becoming the next big thing on the folk circuit which, ten years ago, would have sounded like an insult to some but not anymore. No, the strange legacy of the likes of Laura Marling, Seth Lakeman and Mumford & Sons is that folk music has reached a younger audience and, therefore, it has credibility once again with the likes of BBC Radio 2 putting a considerable amount of weight behind the folk scene. The band’s new single, ‘Lay Her Down’, opens with atmospheric acoustic guitar and a bowed double bass laying a frosty bed for vocalist Lara Snowdon to delicately tread upon. Almost immediately upon the introduction of drums and violin I’m reminded of much the missed Brother & Bones because the of the intensity of the aural atmosphere created by these musicians. There is also a hint of the aforementioned Marling, a slight taste of Devon peers Harbottle & Jonas and, pleasingly, a real sense of a band ploughing their own furrow. The intensity only grows and grows towards a climax and you get the very real impression that Velvet & Stone have drawn from the dramatic land and seascapes which surround them to make a tune full of passion and heart. Much as Sound of the Sirens and Wildwood Kin emerged from the Exeter scene to make a splash further afield, I fully expect Velvet & Stone to be next in line.
