    "A stunning find." The Sunday Times

    "..enchanting solo masterpieces are laced with lo-fi murder folk and droning harps which are more like PJ Harvey's foray into the autoharp than Joanna Newsom's twee fixations."
    The Independent Ones To Watch Blog

    "Musically and emotionally, it's belting" BBC Music

    Taken from Woodpecker Wooliams album "The Bird School Of Being Human", "Gull" is the follow up single to "Sparrow", which proved a massive specialist radio hit throughout August and September this year.
    "Gull" considers the softer side of a tough male character - a perpetrator of domestic violence, returning to his "safe place", a greasy spoon cafe, reflecting on his crime and its liberating effect over breakfast, as he relaxes and confesses all. The song explores a sympathetic view of a trapped soul committing violence to try and free himself. Sonically "Gull" stumbles and reels through distorted gull tape loops. It spits crisp harp chords as the vocals shudder and quake over sub-bass pitch-shifted euphonium and glitchy drums.
