Ward Thomas - Footnotes EP | FESTIVALPHOTO

Ward Thomas - Footnotes EP



Ward Thomas are a Country/Americana duo who come from somewhere not really known as a hotbed of Country music - Hampshire. The duo are twin sisters Lizzy and Catherine Ward Thomas.

The first track on the EP is "The good and the right", about our relationship with technology and how it can offer so much good yet at the same time is often used poorly with kids addicted to video games and mothers ignoring the children while the use their mobiles. It's an interesting topic to cover in the lyrics and the sisters have crafted a great song here. An excellent start to the EP

Next up is "Footnotes (happy ending)", a song that has more of a Country feel, particularly from the guitar work. It's a nice upbeat track (as you'd expect from the title) with some lovely vocals.

Next we have "Take that train". It's another great track and some nice songwriting with the lyrics telling a story.

The last track is a cover of the Dougie MacLean song "Caledonia". While they do a great job with this cover it does seem a strange song to cover for a band that isn't Scottish (since it's a song about feeling homesick for Scotland), and it doesn't fit the Country/Americana style either, so it does feel a bit out of place.

This is an excellent debut EP, and I can't wait to hear their album when it comes out later this year.

The Footnotes EP will be released on 7th April 2014
