It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned Roo Panes, although he does seem to be constantly gigging around London and the south of England. He has recently finished his first EP, it’s called Once. It shows off his delightful melody writing and beautiful choices of instrumentation. The last two tracks are my highlights. The title track ‘Once’ is a slow brooding track, his voice sounds rich and strong. ‘Mistral’ is more upbeat with thick swirling melodies and heavy instrumentation.
On the Bandcamp page it states that this EP is ‘Best listened to through headphones looking out of the window with a cup of tea’ and I couldn’t agree more.
