About The Unthanks
Rather than embarking on some grand celebration, The Unthanks are quietly marking their 10th anniversary with just a handful of shows, their feeling being that if folk music is a lifelong pursuit, 10 years is just a drop in the ocean. And in the same respect, rather than putting out an exploitative ‘best of’, there will instead be a release of rarities. live recordings, memorabilia and unreleased material, coinciding with the tour. Consider everything you know and un-think it”, “an epic that Sigur Rós or Elbow would be proud of”, “folk on a different level – airborne.
In wall-to-wall four and five star reviews, this year’s Mount the Air has been described as “quite simply, a masterpiece”, “music that asks you to perhaps”, “the first truly jaw-dropping album of 2015”, “both wildly experimental and comfortably familiar”, “gorgeously orchestrated”, “one of the best records I’ve ever reviewed”, “kind of beautiful, kind of blue”, and “beautiful yet stark, orchestral yet intimate, clever yet with simple purity, dark yet kissed with light, ascendant yet earthy and rooted.”
