One man band Influenced by 70's children's TV and 80's indie with a bit o' folk thrown in for good measure. Instrumental music that begins with a simple riff or theme that is taken for a walk to see where it may wander...
Want to use these tracks in a commercial project/video?
I came across The Naughty Step in the late 2000's and I have never since been able to get these brilliantly sublime songs out of my head. Now, nearly a decade later, I still find the same kind of incandescent joy listening to these tracks :)
Being a Scot born in the early '60's, the first two tracks on album took me back to my childhood.
A better, more relaxed, slower, gentler world. Where "Camberwick Green" and "Trumpton" existed and "Tales of the Riverbank" was a natural history film!
From there on a more modern approach took over but still with the same wonderful atmosphere.
I love the improvised percussion.
The building of melody upon inventive melody is wonderful and the whole production atmosphere is deliciously intimate.
Loved the whole album, but "Ratty's Return" is going on my playlist!
