Aberfeldy’s folk tinged pop comes with a playful side to match its comfortable jauntiness and softly crafted songs. Strings are plucked, strummed and bowed sweetly behind the vocal led songs on ‘Young Forever’. The previous singles ‘Love Is An Arrow’, ‘Vegetarian Restaurant’ and ‘Heliopolis By Night’ are demonstrative of the range of subject matter covered; from longings directed at catering staff to alien abduction. This is an album so suited to a summer’s day, perfectly light, breezy and hot.
