Poppy Ackroyd – Trains (One Little Indian Records) 
Poppy Ackroyd - Trains

Release Date: Out Now

Poppy Ackroyd is definitely one of my finds of 2017 and latest release ‘Trains’ just heaps more glory atop her already glorious output but throws in a video of epic proportions as well. The itchy, unsettling piano riff is like the start of something on the distant horizon coming closer with urgency and promise, mirrored perfectly by dancing pebbles in the video. A scattered, crustacean inspired rhythm skits in the background and strings do their best to smooth and soothe without detracting from the tension, excitement and impending…. something. Something is coming and whatever it is has me excited. Poppy Ackroyd is at the peak of her powers with an album due out in early 2018 and I think we’ll all be hearing a lot of her creations in the next 12 months which is good news for her but even better news for us. Do yourself a favour and get in on this now before John Lewis buys the rights and makes Christmas 2018 a hugely tense affair.
