Scottish songstress Rachel Sermanni unveils her debut album Under Mountains this month and it is a thing of beauty. Falling somewhere between the quirky Nu-Folk of Joanna Newsom and the more mature sophistication of Norah Jones, this is an impeccably produced collection of songs that showcases the outstanding vocal talents of Ms Sermanni. Right from the opening track 'Breath Easy', we are left in no doubt as to where this albums strengths lie - her voice is pushed right up in the mix, and with restrained and sympathetic instrumentation and arrangements, the overall package is extremely seductive.
