Lucy Ward has done the same thing with Single Flame. a huge step forward in Sound and approach from her first album Adelphi Must Fly. Although she still has the time for a full folk blowout, it's songs like Icarus which, I feel, point the way for her future direction. One to watch.
Also here are some beautiful photos for the album launch by the super talented Elly Lucas. Check her out too. http://www.ellylucas.co.uk/
