Song Of The Day

The-Unthanks-Rachel-and-Becky-Unthank-Portrait-by-Andy-Gallacher-medium-sizedThe prolific Unthank sisters return with their eighth album in ten years, Mount The Air. Younger sister Becky sings Flutter, an odd mix of Northern Folk and contemporary musical experimentation making old instruments sound new. Becky’s accent grounds the song in northern Folk tradition but with a busy drum beat and cinematic strings they have found a way to make the future and the past as one.
