Quickbeam - Quickbeam

A quick blog to highlight this exceptional debut album by Glasgow based band Quickbeam. There does seem to be a scene going on for acoustic based bands. Not really folk music, but chamber based certainly and taking their cue from different elements such as post-rock and even prog. For me Quickbeam are one of the best. With Monika Gromeks distinctly Scottish vocals, the music is beautifully melancholic and dreamlike. Go to their website and search out the excellent video for "Immersed".
