tend and see

Tend & See have that rare knack of being able to draw you in by being quiet. Their delivery is soft, and when you bend in closer to get a better listen you are richly rewarded. The five indie folk numbers are beautifully sung by Melissa Bandura (Familiar Wild) and rounded out by subtle but engaging ambient touches. The mood sways from gently poetic (“War”) to bubbling joy (“Falcon”) and to cinematic/dramatic (“Set On Sand”), but at no time does T&S lose grasp of your attention.
