The Kindling were introduced to me as 'Bon Iver on the lash with David Bowie' ..which to me sounded awesome, and yes, they live up to this description..
I really like them, I think you will too - their sound is cloaked in melancholy which reminds me of smokey evenings in the Autumn. The sound evokes twiggy trees and walking home after the pubs close whilst wearing a tightly wrapped scarf.. mmm.
Runaway Shoes is my favourite - listen to this if you folky stuff and mellow tunes. Lovely late night listening.
Also, they're playing in London in September and I fully intend to check out their show in Hoxton...
