Back in April, Roo Panes released a digital single ‘My Sweet Refuge’. Its sparse and haunting qualities drew comparisons to Nick Drake from many, partly due to the songs fragility, but also it’s obvious Englishness.
Three months on, Roo has released a new video. ‘Sketches of Summer’ is taken from his 2018 album ‘Quiet Man’ which was released via CRC Records in June.
It’s got the haunting piano of parts of Nick Drake’s back catalogue and the deep, chocolatey tones of Gomez. The new single from British alt-folk act Roo Panes is a maudlin treat, indeed.
Taken the their forthcoming album ‘Quiet Man’, out via CRC Records on June 15th, if the new single is indicative of the rest of the full length, those who like a deep, late night listen are in for something very enjoyable.
