If that free google translator is correct, then this is the nicest and most incredibly positive review of ‘We’ve Been Here Before' yet. Click here for the article and for those of you who don’t speak German (and seriously, what are you waiting for?), here’s a rough translation:
Old English - Unfairly beautiful Dream-Pop from Toronto
Something very fine landed in my mailbox the other day. Between the numberless amount of newsletters, concert announcements was a small shining pearl. So quiet and fine, it almost went unnoticed, and so quiet and delicate she almost died. We go to Toronto, Canada. Initially founded by songwriter and singer Matt Henderson as a solo project, Old English is now a band with all the trimmings. Vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass and drums and the occasional trumpet provide atmospheric music from indie, electronica, shoegaze and dream-pop. The current song “We’ve Been Here Before” with its mix of dreamy synths and guitars as well as a dim gently propulsive rhythm section is to me at least equal to my heart.
