multikulti.com - ocena * * * * 1/2:
Grupa Snowpoet porównywana jest do Joanny Newsom czy też Bon Iver, i nie ma w tym żadnej przesady, bowiem marzycielski amalgamat eterycznej psychodelii z inteligentnym miejskim folkiem w wydaniu magnetycznej wokalistki i tekściarki Lauren Kinsella i multiinstrumentalisty Chrisa Hysona trafia prosto w serce!

Mieszczące się w nabierającym wiatru w żagle, folkowym nurcie anglosaskiej muzyki niezależnej, piosenki Snowpoet z debiutanckiej płyty "Thought You Knew", skręcające czasami w stronę jazzowej formy (saksofon Josh Arcoleo w "Love Again"), innym razem w stronę kameralistyki ("Pixel") niezmiennie utrzymują bardzo wysoki poziom.
W studio nagraniowym w Cardiff, w styczniu 2017 obok dwójki liderów znaleźli się jeszcze pianista Matthew Robinson, akustyczny gitarzysta Nicholas Costley-White, saksofonista Josh Arcoleo, perkusista Dave Hamblett, skrzypaczka Alice Zawadski, wiolonczelistka Francesca Ter-Berg i w trzech utworach perkusjonista Lloyd Haines.
Stworzyli oni wspaniały album, wykorzystali potencjał instrumentalny do osiągnięcia pełnego, bogatego brzmienia. Jednocześnie słychać tutaj przywiązanie do analogowego, "XIX-wiecznego" myślenia o muzyce, w której detale brzmieniowe, niuanse kolorystyczne, cyzelowane współbrzmienia, granie ciszą odgrywają zasadniczą rolę. Ale to pewnie zasługa songwriterskiej anglosaskiej tradycji, wywiedzionej ze szkockich, irlandzkich czy też angielskich tawern i pubów.

Lauren Kinsella czaruje słuchaczy charakterystycznym baśniowym głosem, i jeśli dodamy do tego, jak natchnionymi kompozytorami są członkowie zespołu – otrzymamy album kompletny, imponujący od pierwszego przesłuchania, dający przyjemność odkrywania nowych pokładów przy kolejnych.

Editor's info:
Thought You Knew is the second album from Snowpoet, the London based band led by the writing duo of Jazz FM Vocalist of the Year (2016) Lauren Kinsella and composer and multi-instrumentalist Chris Hyson. Born out of a deep musical friendship and mutual understanding, Snowpoet’s acclaimed eponymous debut released in 2016 won rave reviews and a devoted audience with its compelling sound, drawing comparisons with Bjork.

With Thought You Knew the musical collaboration and sound takes a big step up in terms of production, musical ideas and execution. Blending sweet hook-laden vocal lines with warm and lush arrangements, the music is infectious, delicate and tasteful. The sound is clear and beautifully produced while the lyrical content exhibits a deep and raw emotion.

The self-penned tunes confirm Lauren and Chris’ growing sense of identity as a writing partnership, a progression that’s evident in the confidence with which they approach the two covers on the album – ‘Dear Someone’ by Gillian Welch and ‘Snow’ by Emilíana Torrini. Lauren demonstrates her ability to inhabit the world of a sophisticated singer-songwriter exemplified by these two heroines.

Featuring saxophonist Josh Arcoleo, guitarist Nick Costley-White, Matt Robinson on piano and Dave Hamblett on drums Snowpoet has produced an album of songs from a full-spectrum colour palette sustained and illuminated by supreme levels of musicianship.

With a new home at Edition Records Snowpoet is set to reach new heights, and is on the verge of building an extensive international following and profile confirming its reputation as one of the most interesting and vibrant vocal led ensembles in the UK today.

Reviews
‘A beautiful 10-piece collection full of warmth, depth, and contemplation’ GINA LOVES JAZZ (DE)

“Snowpoet knows how to leave a beautiful, poetic impression in a good half hour. If you make a little effort, you will have a wonderful growing-on-you disc here. One that you’ll go back to again and again. In the long run, this is the kind of album you often look back to.” WRITTEN IN MUSIC (NL)

“Thought You Knew offers a delicately haunting collection of songs that seamlessly straddle the boundaries of folk, jazz and popular music and are all infused with, as the name suggests, a subtle poetic delivery.” ALL ABOUT JAZZ (UK)

“Such a flawless vocal performance…” NICK LUSCOMBE, BBC RADIO 3 (UK)
