Sometimes in this age of technology and modern production it’s easy to forget the value of the simple things. With the title track of her debut EP Down By The Water (not a cover of arguably one of the best PJ Harvey songs ever) Welsh singer songwriter Greta Isaac reminds us of how simplicity can bring the greatest of beauties. On this song you'll find pretty harmonies, a gentle old fashioned lullaby of a melody and a hint of camp fire Americana within its homespun loveliness. If you’re a fan of the likes of The Staves and First Aid Kit Down By The Water is almost guaranteed to be your new favourite acoustic thing.
Greta's EP was originally released last October, but its recent full emergence on Soundcloud was the impetus for a post on Breaking More Waves, although it’s not the first time she’s appeared here, with one previous post way back in November 2011.
