Following a stunning show last night at London’s Cadogan Hall, Roo Panes second album has finally been released!

Love for ‘Paperweights’ has already been pouring in from around the world. Here is a selection of quotes from our favourite music publications:

‘Anyone baffled by Mumford and Sons’ new direction should look Roo Panes’ way… Panes identifies far more with Nick Drake, emotions swelling and dipping on arrangements that accompany his pastoral imagery and light guitar, his voice rising from the depths to eye-watering falsetto in a blink.’  4/5 (Q Magazine)

His songs drill deep into the human psyche to explore universal troubadour themes of heartbreak, regret and desire. His warm, bucolic voice ranges from dark baritone to an undemonstrative falsetto, underpinned by gentle acoustic guitar, double bass, muted piano and hushed strings that evoke Robert Kirby’s timeless arrangements for Nick Drake.’ (Uncut Magazine)

” a new take on the genre, collaging influences that seem to encompass contemporaries like Greg Laswell and Dan Mangan and rearranging inspirations into something wholly his own.” – (Interview Magazine)

Other highlights include… a glowing 8/10 from There Goes The Fear and Drunken Werewolf declaring Roo Panes as the finest folk of this decade!

You can download ‘Paperweights’ on iTunes, buy it physically on CD / LP through the CRC Store or Amazon or stream it on Spotify.

However you choose to listen, we hope you enjoy it!
