The Kennedys – Closer Than You Know (Kennedys Music).
Largely unknown in the UK, Maura and Pete Kennedy have been acclaimed in the US for two decades but this is their first UK release since 1996. Close harmonies bring comparisons to The Corrs; Sign, Happy Again and Rhyme And Reason for example. U2’s Wild Honey and the Alex Chilton homage, Big Star Song reference The Byrds whilst Marina Dream is a fine example of Simon & Garfunkel style Folk. Pete’s guitar on Cradle To A Boat lifts the song and they turn to Folk Rock for Made Of Sand. Gentle folk appears on I’ll Come On Over and Winter Lies but Winter and Home are more haunting.
