Meadowlark - Family Tree

Plymouth based Meadowlark are probably going to be getting compared to London Grammar a lot, given that they're both female-led trios with vocals that pull firmly on the heartstrings. However, that is more or less where the similarities end, at least if "Family Tree" is anything to by.

Unlike LG, whose sound is quite electronic and stripped back, Meadowlark offer something more earthy, organic and expansive, as singer Kate McGill sings of familial angst over a sparse piano line, which blooms into something more cinematic by the time we reach the 4:30 mark. They've got something special here, just don't let the lazy comparisons put you off.

"Family Tree" is taken from the band's début E.P "Three Six Five", which will be released on May 26th.
