Suffolk Park’s Les Krills are Alain De Carne and film maker Nick Pollet. A band that initially came to fruition with the sole aim of providing backing music for some of Pollet’s videos. It comes as no surprise then, that with their debut EP In Another World, Les Krills present us with five highly cinematic tracks. Boasting the classic combination of colourful lead lines, catchy melodies and pensive lyrical content; the release is without a doubt, an impressive introduction to the duos’ brand of dreamy folk tunes.
Stand outs Old Shoes and Money Trees seem especially familiar, conjuring visions of that last summer dusk. Those evenings where you used to watch the sky turn pink, as you sat sinking somewhere with sand between your toes. Alain’s voice is smooth and sweet. Nick’s drumming proves he’s a man of many talents. All in all, the release is atmospheric, cosy and nostalgic. A promising and consistent group of songs that a lot of indie pop fanatics would be sure to enjoy.
“Chance says I’ll slip back in old shoes / Gravity pulls me back to you.”
Perhaps it is this lyric that provides the most fitting description of all.
