Hoverance

A 10 track alt country album (30m 21s) — released April 3rd 2015 on Gare du Nord Records

Hoverance is the beautifully pastoral debut album from Ralegh Long. After two well received E.P's - 2011's Sprawl and 2012's The Gift -a film score - the BAFTA-nominated Black Pond - Long left London and returned to the surrounding countryside where he grew up. Sitting at a piano overlooking the fields he wrote a debut album suffused with natural imagery. Drawing musically on personal favourites such as Bill Fay and Nick Drake, and lyrically on the writings of 20th Century mystics such as Thomas Merton, Long fashioned a reflective, enigmatic and searching set of songs. Returning to London, he gathered a group of friends to record the album. The cast of collaborators includes Tom Dougall of TOY on guitar, Jack Hayter (ex-Hefner) on pedal steel, string- arranger Louis-Phillipe (El records, The Clientele) and indie-pop orchestra A Little Orchestra.

'Twilit ambience and demented beauty' The Guardian

'Really, really beautiful' Lauren Laverne, BBC6 Music

**** - Mojo Magazine

He seems incapable of sitting at a piano and coming up with anything that doesn’t tremble with almost mystical longing ... you’ll be reminded variously of Nilsson, early Todd Rundgren, even Alex Chilton at his most overwrought and wracked. - Paul Lester The Guardian

Really, really beautiful - Lauren Laverne BBC6 Music
