Late last year a new Liverpool band called Stealing Sheep released a six track EP called Noah and The Paper Moon. I missed it first time around, but the hype that’s been building amidst the release of their debut album Into The Diamond Sun (it came out last week) has wobbled onto my radar over the past few days – and today I finally got round to listening to them.
The all-female three-piece are signed to Heavenly and their sound mixes up elements of lo-fi, psych-folk and DIY pop to create a delightfully mellow and mind expanding experience, all lovely vocal harmonies, spiraling guitars, and psychedelic synths. For a band who’ve been together less than two years it’s quite a feat.
Their current rise has been helped by 6music‘s Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq, Rob Da Bank, Jarvis Cocker and Tom Ravenscroft and the band have played a number of UK festivals this summer.
