Raising the Fawn – “Drownded”
The North Sea

While parts of this album stray into the falsetto melancholy of bands like Aereogramme and For Stars, the meaty guitar and willingness to extend their songs into epic territory (at 11:11, this is the longest on the album but not by far) make Raising the Fawn a bit more exciting. “Drownded” covers a lot of ground, or water as it were, and while it leaves plenty of space to breathe, it never gets boring and the songwriting is just plain solid.
