the April Maze

Folk music is most enjoyable when you don’t have to close your eyes to imagine the knitwear, open fires and frosted windowpanes of winter that its rhythms evoke.

So with temperatures dropping below freezing as we head into the festive season, the arrival of the April Maze on our shores is above all timely.

The Melbourne duo’s debut European release – a self-titled mish-mash of tracks from their first two albums that were reserved for ears Down Under – is a moreish introduction to their acoustic delights.

From every banjo’s pluck and cello’s hum, to each skilfully balanced harmony and stirring lyrical turn, there’s an impressive range to this strong body of work. You sense there’s more to come from this most promising of husband-and-wife teams.
