Snowbird Records

One Mile An Hour are a three piece band and they are heavily influenced by another three piece – Crosby, Stills & Nash. Vocalist Jeff Kightly has wonderfully high register – on ‘Magpie Song’ he recalls the late, great Jeff Buckley. That song also features electric guitar solos reminiscent of Queen’s Brian May circa the ‘Night Of The Opera’ album, very impressive.

The music lulls you in, nothing heavy and a classy mix of folk guitar picking and a late 60′s groove in the rhythm section. Opener ‘Sunken Ships’ could be a long lost CSN song and it is only the modern production by John Dent (John Martyn/Nick Drake) that gives the game away. ‘Nine Eight’ is a ten minute jam and something a bit different from what has gone on before.

Stay with this album as bar a few songs like ‘Sunken Ships’, it is not an instant album by any means but one that reveals itself a little more musically after each successive listen. Listen, enjoy and be amazed…
