Sam Airey - The Unlocking

Despite putting Airey's The Blackout in our best tracks of 2011 rundown we've never before actually properly written about the Leeds-based singer-songwriter. Bearing a mature voice marinaded in whiskey croak and a command of imagery born of growing up on a small island (Anglesey) with is small town and maritime suggestions, it slowly turns from an acoustic sparsity to a haunting shimmer without losing touch with its directest of introspective connections. The EP A Marker And A Map is out on the 26th.
