Stornoway are due to release their second album Tales From Terra Firma on March 11th in the UK. Of the album lead singer Brian says: “The title of the album conjures up for me, the romantic notion of an adventurer, exploring new lands and reporting on his experiences. Discovering what it is to be human and an enthusiasm for adventure, which I feel is true of me.” This theme continues through the music of the record which is more ambitious and polished than the band’s debut, with less of the wide eyed innocence that Beachcomber’s Windowsill possessed. Whether Tales From Terra Firma finds a special place in people’s hearts as much as their debut did remains to be seen, but for now here’s the rather jaunty Knock Me On The Head, the obvious choice for a single from the record.
The video starts with a weather based theme with cloud, snow, winds and Brian in front of a weather map depicting the two places that obviously mean a lot to the band, their home town of Oxford and (of course) Stornoway. From there it heads off into the world of fantasy.
