Pellumair - Iris (Tug Boat Records 15/11/04) - Single Review
(Tug Boat Records 15/11/04)
Here we have three tracks featuring alluring and meditatively soothingly folk meets Mersey beat instrumentals. Additionally, there is the deft vocals of Jaymie Caplen that give this debut offering from the dreamy, percussion free Hampshire duo a soothing and tantalizing touch. 'Iris' will float around in the ocean of your mind like a dingy in the pacific. Memories of the heyday of Simon & Garfunkel
will come rushing into your mind in the uplifting 'Turnaround' that is more emotive and thought provoking than a John Donne poem.
Calming ocean noise like backing and the stronger almost Dashboard Confessional type vocals in 'Force Error', brings this fleeting, yet ever so memorable introduction to Pellumair to a strong conclusion and boy; the pleasure will be all yours. This harmonious pair has the depth and dexterity to woo the nation into a state of dreamy happiness.
