Fans of fine English folk can stop whining over Mumford and Sons’ change of direction and refocus on new music now, thanks to the arrival of one Philip Murray Warson. A songwriter who prefers the gentle strum of an acoustic to the fevered pluck of a banjo (judging by his new EP at least), his sound is a pure, classy take on laid back folk.
‘Following Time’ (above) is joined on the two track EP by the evocative ‘Last of the Hunted’, which also brings a spooky spin to things. It all serves as a rather excellent teaser for what Warson could be capable of.
Hopefully an album will be on the way soon to see how this promising start can be built upon. in the meantime, if you’re a roots fan who likes discovering new tunes, head over to Bandcamp for your very own copy – well worth a couple of quid.
