Mostly Autumn - Sight Of Day album review
A new day dawns for the prog troopers
When the much-loved Heather Findlay left Mostly Autumn in 2010, some old time fans perhaps thought it would be a death knell for the band. Roll on a couple of years and The Ghost Moon Orchestra signalled a revitalised band, this time with Olivia Sparnenn stepping up to lead vocals. It pushed the classic Mostly Autumn sound in fresh, more European directions, an effect only added to by 2014’s dark offering Dressed In Voices. The near three-year wait for new material has been worth it. Sight Of Day represents a confident combination of old and new, an effect only added to by the welcome reappearance of the Autumn’s old confrère Chris Johnson after a seven-year absence.
