Fidgety feel-good indie with gang harmonies fit for a campfire singalong made Summer Peaks‘ vibrant debut album a 2014 highlight. So it’s with far-flung arms that we greet a wondrous acoustic EP from the NorCal trio, which they say has been bubbling in the pipeline for the last couple of years.

Wonky new collection ‘I Adorn The Night’ sees them channel The Shins‘ off-kilter early jaunts to craft jangly nuggets of folk joy. That comparison is no more evident than on Americana-tinged favourite ‘Swim Out’, which comes on like a proggy unplugged James Mercer – its conclusion sounding like members of Supertramp and Fleet Foxes have been tagged in as the Portland-based singer-songwriter’s brand-spanking backing band.
