The Unthanks: Howard Assembly Room, Leeds
Dave Simpson, The Guardian, 29 March 2011
THE UNTHANKS' startling folk has all the eerie power of their native Northumbria's coast. Backed by trumpet, drums and a female string section reminiscent of Robert Kirby's work with Nick Drake, Adrian McNally's ghostly piano entwines with Rachel and Becky Unthank's extraordinary voices on songs of love and loneliness.
