The band Narrow Plains will literally manage to take you out to a dance night right in your room (or wherever you are listening to their songs). The result of Ed Sheeran being the main vocalist in Mumford and Sons would be this band.
The South London based indie/americana band consists of: Charlie Ferriday (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Connick (Bass Guitar, Backing Vocals), Stuart Connick (Drums, Backing Vocals) and Edd Simpson (Guitar, Keys). Writing their songs together as a band you can feel that this band is more like a family.
They have published an EP and the Album “So rewind/Keep You Anyway” and are working with the famous producer John Davonport (who also worked with Bruce Springsteen, John Mellancamp, John Lennon etc.) The lyrics are mostly about the experiences they’ve made on their own and things their listeners can identify with.
On the EP there are six songs, very different, so there is something for every taste, like a good buffet. My personal favourite is “Somewhere in Between”, an acoustic, slower song, where Charlies voice comes over more sensitive and warm.
The album is mainly very upbeat and fast. “Restless Mind“, with the catchy lyrics and the soothing sound of Charlie Ferriday invites you in a world of rollercoasters that you want to ride and explore. Then there is “I Should’ve Known” which you will fall in love with when you liked the TV Series "True Blood” and the main theme "Bad Things” sung by Jace Everett. If you want to rest your feet a little you should listen to "Let it Die”, a song about letting go. "Tomorrow” is a beautiful, yet sad, love song, which I liked the most.
You will most likely hear about this band if you didn’t until now. So get on your dancing shoes and check out their songs!
