A selection of tracks from the Candythief album Imaginary Medals!
Eclectic Edinburgh-based musical adventurer Candythief returns with third full length album of chamber/orchestral pop-with-grit, festooned with propulsive riffs, jubilant melodies, and spacious reveries. Ambient, psychedelic builds give way to black-eyed carnival noir blues and urgent but precise arrangements tinged with a chanson touch of Jacques Brel and Neil Hannon: a crisp, beguiling and distinctive modern take on European songwriting.
**** The Scotsman
‘I’m utterly enchanted by Candythief’s Imaginary Medals album.... she’s found time on her current tour to visit The Hastings in Seaton Deleval. It’s a lovely pub at the best of times, but I imagine it’s even better when she’s in it.... one of my favourite releases of the year to date.... It’s a beautifully heady brew, thrumming with real life and no little verve, and I imagine she’ll enrapture the Hastings pub’ The Crack (Live Preview)
‘It’s a real breezy delight’
'A refreshingly unconventional pop folk album, Imaginary Medals has a liberated, magpie like ethos not unlike the output of Jane Weaver and Nadine Shah. De Cabarrus beguiles from the off with unusual song structures, psychedelic melodies and fresh takes on traditional songs...' Nadine McBay (The National)
