The defining themes of No More the Green Hills came to us when we started arranging False True Love, the lead single from the album. Working on the song we felt that spark of connection between the text, the music and our voices, and a connecting of the dots of the types of songs we’d been collecting. These were songs of love, loss, and nature, and how we navigate through our complicated relationships with them.

Most of the songs on the album are traditional, except The Black Fox and Up And Awa’. A large part of our inspiration was the idea that folk songs, rather than being treated as artifacts, are living parts of our culture, always evolving as they pass from singer to singer and place to place.

In telling these stories, we placed harmony singing at the forefront, using guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, harmonium and double bass to create a nostalgic, dream-like landscape. Working with Andy Bell (producer) and Ben Nicholls (double bassist) elevated these songs and perfectly captured our vision of a contemporary, yet timeless sound.

We collaborated with Laura Boswell Printmaker to design our album cover. Listening to our music, she chose colours that she associated with it and the themes within, and has created something truly beautiful.
