Live Gig Video: Stornoway preview new material in intimate set on a London boat for Sounds from a Room

Last Wednesday, Stornoway took to the stage for an intimate set in London for Sounds from a Room, who recorded the entire 48-minute set in a fabulous space: on a boat. The first number is all acoustic, with their gorgeous harmonising voices, Brian Briggs on guitar and Oli Steadman (sporting an epic – assumedly Movember inspired – mustache) on double bass. And then they take to their usual instruments to continue the set. Watch the set in all its beauty here. (Sorry, I’m not allowed to embed it on here.) ‘Tales from Terra Firma’, their second album for 4AD, drops in March 2013.

Also FYI, in case you hadn’t heard know, the band have started a new Twitter, @StornowayBand (@theoldblindman still exists, I guess they started the new one to not confuse any new fans).
