Inside Voice (AntiFragile Music)
Big Little Lions are back with another collection of catchy folk-pop songs that will have you singing along.
The cross-border duo of Helen Austin and Paul Otten once again creates an entirely cohesive and “much bigger than two people” sound that is breezy and fun, but this time digs a little deeper when it comes to subject matter.
Yet even with an exploration of day-to-day struggles and mental health issues as a noticeable throughline, the beautiful harmonies keep you humming with the choir.
Sweet and ethereal vocals preside over stories of loneliness (Stay In) and the hints of BeeGees disco in the chorus of Old Armchair.
Simultaneously pushing the boundaries of their previous work, yet still vintage Big Little Lions, this record is a pleasure to listen to, somehow giving us a ray of sunshine while we’re heading into the dark of winter.
