Fans of a certain act from Manchester should be wearing a broad smile on seeing the name of this band. And if you are at all partial to tunes that are embellished with rolling harmonies and flowing jangle that particular facial expression should remain steady over the course of ‘The Seven Seas’ (it’s a Polaris Prize nominee after all!). Rishi Dhir is a veteran of the music scene, although ‘The Seven Seas’ is his first record since leaving the High Dials in 2006. Sounds to us like the break has done him real good because Rishi has managed to whip up an album of jangle pop delights with Elephant Stone. Not only that but he has also put his recent immersion into the world of the sitar to great use, with those Eastern influences forming an integral part of the album. ‘The Seven Seas’ is awash with great moments and its arrival at this time of the year means that summer just got a whole lot brighter. You can download the album and artwork for just €4, a small price to have you kissing the cotton clouds.
