Folk virtuoso, Roo Panes is back with a new single, Tiger Striped Sky, taken from his forthcoming début record, which is to be released in the autumn. The single, out June 9th via CRC Music, is another stirring tale from this innate storyteller, that sparks an inner excitement for adventure and curiosity, a wistful, heartfelt track that shimmers with optimism and light.
Roo Panes music is essentially pure magic accentuated by warm, glowing soundscapes of sweet string arrangements, rich melodies and delicately strummed guitar chords, it has all the candour of Ben Howard, yet the melodic rush of Mumford & Sons. Listening to Tiger Striped Sky, you cannot help but paint a picture in your mind of a majestic sunset, infused with bright sensuous reds, yellows and oranges. Roo Panes music is transportive and sensual, and always sentimental. Tiger Striped Sky is a ray of sunshine for the ears, sweet syrupy goodness that creates a deep connection with the listener.
