Now here’s a beautiful thing to brighten up an Autumn or Winter’s evening. Mount The Air is the first single from the new album of the same name by The Unthanks.
Mount The Air is based on a traditional Dorset song, found by Becky Unthank, and written by her and pianist and producer Adrian McNally. Together they have created a combination of jazz and folk that demands to be savoured. The video to the track is made by acclaimed animator Nick Murray Willis.
Mount The Air is released on their own label, RabbleRouser Music, on 9th Feb 2015; the single is out on 8th Dec 2014.
You can pre-order both the album and the single from The Unthanks’ website, here.
