Ardent John:

When The Time Comes

Slow Train Records

Hailing from the Edinburgh music scene, where they are garnering a strong reputation since forming in 2005, Ardent John have just released this seven-track mini-album for our delectation.

Opening with a lovely, spacey, slowbuilding instrumental, they push into a more delicate set of songs, showing more of the nineties indie influence.

As the album progresses, it encompasses hints of The Music, with a willingness to go for the big, psychedelic-tinged growers, as well as tighter, bouncy numbers that play lightly on folk and country influences in a manner similar to the earlier, magpie-era Coral.

This is an impressive debut.
