The White Birch – Small Hours

So brittle yet so smoulderingly intense from Norway’s the White Birch. The band have broken up but they’ve left us with plenty of tear-stained classics over 5 albums. The falsetto which so illuminates their music came from Ola Fløttum who was also the bands chief songwriter. ‘Small Hours’ (did Donal Dineen ever see fit to use it?) from ‘Come Up For Air’ is a case in point with its sweetly jangling backdrop and Fløttum’s barely dispatched words. Gentle company for injured parties in middle Europe. KD
