Outlines (Glide Records)

I’m having this! Water Pageant are a male/female pairing from Oxford who operate in the sweet spot that exists between alt-folk and toasty electronica. But just because they’ve located that sweet spot, it doesn’t mean that they’ve sugar coated everything as their lyrical concerns see them taking in everything from Enlightenment-era science as well as meteorological and agricultural themes. I guess you could also say that they’re in thrall to a healthy bit of yearning, in a manner that recalls Bon Iver or Sufjan Stevens.
