Sensitive, playful folk-pop by the brainy Oxford crew

It's not every folky chamber-pop band that manages to rack up a couple of million YouTube views, but Stornoway have managed it by combining bold, playful melodies with unusual instrumentation and a bittersweet psychedelic edge. Boasting a Russian translator and a doctor of ornithology among their number, the Oxford crew use their lyrics to address matters both emotional and ecological.
