Husband and wife bands can be a fractious outfit – as Fleetwood Mac proved in the 1970s, but there is no denying the chemistry that couple Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have.
With Sean’s brother being the highly regarded Seth Lakeman, and having worked with the likes of Imelda May, Frank Turner, The Levellers and Billy Bragg in the last year alone, the weight of expectation on Kathryn and Sean is heavy indeed.
But they pull off a decent album against all the hype. It’s a chilled out Sunday morning record comprising 10 relaxed musings on life and love.
Smooth slices of piano weave between heartworn guitar and sensual vocals on 52 Hertz, while the piano takes centre stage for the home-recorded A Song To Live By.
What comes across most prevalently on all of Tomorrow Will Follow Today though is the sheer genuine feeling that the pair put into their songs. It’s achingly beautiful, inspiring and dramatic, and most significantly leaves you feeling like a changed person after only one listen.
A stunning record from start to finish, it is time Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman stepped out of the shadows to gain recognition for their music rather than their CVs.
