Marshmallow, otherwise known as Alan Gregg (ex of The Mutton Birds and Bic Runga), are New Zealand’s answer to The Charlatans and Teenage Fanclub. ‘Marshmallow’ was created after a year’s work in Stoke Newington and this debut solo album can be summed up by its downhearted tone and unimposing disposition. The lilting, strum-fuelled and lightly floating pop often carries a tale of woe or disappointment.

Overall this pleasant summertime sound, softly sung and sweetly arranged, is a good background album. The west coast influenced undulating country rock doesn’t demand attention and can easily waft over the listener without leaving a trace.
