‘Dead Crow Pirates’ offer escapism without having to leave the house – ‘Bluebeard’ EP review

Birmingham group ‘Dead Crow Pirates’ drop their debut EP ‘Bluebeard’ this week (24th July 2014).

These five hypnotic tracks, with hushed vocals and tender acoustics, are cleverly layered over sampled street conversation, children laughing, crackling fires and the mesmerising sound of gentle waves hitting a pebbled shore. The EP contains a collection of tracks that demand to be heard positioned horizontally and preferably with the warmth of a fine summer’s day stroking your face.

“That’s all” stands out from its EP bed-fellows. A sultry low-burner it offers the listener escapism without the need to ever leave your chair. It is a wonderful 3 minutes and 32 seconds of well-crafted music.

The EP’s under-production (meant as a compliment) is its charm. It’s extremely refreshing to hear something this pure and with an atmospheric quality that GIGsoup guarantee will leave you with goose bumps.

The ‘Bluebeard’ EP is available to purchase now and it’s track-listing is as follows…

1.Without Her

2.Hay, It’s a Shame

3.Gone to Sea

4.That’s All

5.Max is the Devil
