PROTECTORS: Soul and Fire Is All We Ever Need: LP

Recently, I was struck low by a virus which had as one nasty side effect—me not wanting to listen to music for the best part of a week. These indie rockers from the North of England provided me with the perfect way to recover and regain that important part of my life. At first I was barely aware of what I was listening to, but as my health improved so the tracks seemed to blossom into fully formed pieces of beauty. The album kept pace with my recovery, gradually opening itself up, displaying its charms in a piecemeal fashion. Suddenly, it was like seeing a beautiful flower blooming for the first time as I was able to acknowledge and enjoy the melodies, well-crafted songs and the delicious harmonies that were on offer—I was healed.
