Discovery: Roofman

Dutch group Roofman has produced something truly beautiful with new release, Still The Mess I Was (Live at TFoA).

By Jane Howkins

This live track was actually recorded spontaneously, giving it a fresh and honest sound. It’s a real testament to Roofman’s skills that it sounds really tight, despite being recorded in such a setting. In terms of the music, Still The Mess I Was (Live at TFoA) is a folk song in the more modern sense, containing some lovely acoustic guitar melodies. The vocals are absolutely full of soul and clarity, really making you feel everything in the lyrics. It’s a beautiful song and one you shouldn’t miss!
