It seem like almost every acoustic record is recorded in Iceland these days, but it certainly seems to be working in Rhob Cunningham’s latest long player “The Window & Day”.
The album is a bright and cheery effort, with title track ‘The Window & Day’ being standout among the 11 tracks. Cunningham’s vocals are very like rising UK indie-pop act Dan Croll, while his guitar pickings echo a mix of Damien Rice and Villagers.
The album was recorded by Bedroom Community producer Valgeir Sigurðsson (Bjork/Bonnie Prince Billy/Feist) & Greenhouse Studio’s Paul Evans,
The writing process began when he travelled to Reykjavik with the songs chosen, where he spent a month rehearsing and then recording with some local musicians.
Début single, ‘Quiet Song’, is available for free download too, with a gig in Dublin’s Button Factory on 18 September to coincide with the release of the album on OLS Records .
