Having already won the kinds of reviews that signal their elevation onto the international stage, Kieran Goss and Annie Kinsella's 'Oh, The Starlingsā is a work of art with poetry and melody at its heart. While at times reminiscent of the great music of the 70s ā Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell or Leonard Cohen ā Goss and Kinsella have undeniably succeeded in creating something magnificently, uniquely theirs: an album that is both classic and modern, simple and multi-layered, quiet and dynamic.
