The new video single from Brighton folk band Laish is called She is Clever. It’s really rather good.
The Laish album came out on local Willkommen label earlier this year, and despite a number of very good reviews seems to have gone by largely unnoticed. That’s a shame because it’s really rather brilliant. The lead Laish man Danny Green (the band name translates as ‘Tribe of Dan’) is one of this town’s finest songwriters. He’s now reformed the band, or formed a new one, and is busy recording a second album.
This song’s from that. I can’t wait.
