Written over the course of five years, Vanderlay’s third record ‘Doubtful Sound’ is their most ambitious yet, marrying their baroque-folk compositions, with the kind of detail driven lyricism that has defined Vanderlays output from the beginning. ‘Doubtful Sound’ evokes the streets of Paris, where the record was written, and litters it with doubt and false hope.
