Vetiver - The Errant Charm

Utterly Lovely
Vetiver - The Errant Charm
Woozy and warm, dreamy and delicate, Vetiver’s trademark aural hug is very much in evidence on this, their fifth outing. Lackadaisical drum machines and looped guitar patterns represent the most gentle of departures, augmenting some understated but beautiful songwriting. ‘Can’t You Tell’ wafts majestically, crying out for summery walks, while ‘Wonder Why’ is propelled by a drum beat which shuffles like a broken-footed man in a rush. If you don’t find yourself singing “my love is a river running soul deep” over the top of ‘Ride, Ride, Ride’ you have more self-control than me and such a classicist feel pervades the whole album. Utterly lovely.
