about

‘an adventurous debut, a concept album exploring the mythic qualities of birds, along with hushed electro-pop backdrops from producer MaJiKer. Andrew’s vocals are suitably airy and larkish… English avant-folk at its finest’ The Observer

'Imagine Bjork working her magic on the English folk tradition’ Uncut Magazine

'One of the most original albums of traditional folk songs that you’ll hear this year… exceptional’ fRoots

‘universally lauded… a deeply and wonderfully bird-obsessed project’ Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction

‘doing quite remarkable things with the English folk tradition’ Mike Harding

'Nature’s daughter Kerry Andrew has a uniquely quirky lilt vocally and lyrically; sounding not too dissimilar to tUnE-yArDs’ Merrril Garbus roaming through a folkloric imagined English woodland back in time… Kerry’s conceptual bird themed suite is at least partly, and in some cases wholly, based on a selection of traditional British folk songs. Her narrated, strung out, siren cooed, breathless and even beatboxed adaptations take those originals in whole new directions… the songbook gazes upon mortality and the inevitable passing of time with all the splendour of a pastoral pagan scene from the Wicker Man’ MONOLITH COCKTAIL

'Andrew is an effortlessly charming and flamboyant frontwoman possessed of a truly beautiful voice, which also served as a seemingly bottomless repository of clicks, clacks and hums, layered and looped into richly absorbing tapestries of sound. Like Knapp, Andrew is a serious musician with a sense of fun and an infectious sense of humour, much in evidence when she quickly dispatched the one drunken heckler in attendance. Along with artists such as Alexander Tucker, Kemper Norton, Lutine and Lost Harbours, Knapp and Andrew are clearly dedicated to pushing British folk music forward into an uncertain future rather than insisting simply on its preservation.’ Drowned in Sound, reviewing at The Great Escape festival
