'Where the vast floodplain of now readily-available musics invites interminable introspection and long-form indulgence, the easeful flow of narrative belies its authors attention to form and detail'

'the tunes build and grow and always seem fresh upon every listen' – NORMAN RECORDS

Third is the latest album release from the London-based instrumental four piece, Tout, and its most ambitious record to date. Drawing on a range of influences including Neil Young, Dirty Three and Do Make Say Think, Third's ten instrumental tracks evoke sprawling vistas, outback lands, expanse and movement. Emotive viola rides atop country-tinged rhythms and thudding double bass. Distorted guitars occasionally emerge to bring dirt and dissonance to the highly crafted melodies.

On Third, guest contributors on trumpet and double bass expand the band's dynamics to produce a uniquely textured collection. Multi-instrumentalist David Coulter adds to the musical arrangements on Third the rarely heard instruments the jaw harp and bowed saw. The resulting sound is one drawn from a palette of historic folk and country blues re-contextualised in to a contemporary form and the aesthetic is highly atmospheric and suggestive of filmic landscapes.
