The Stormy Seas are Edinburgh’s criminally overlooked exporters of fierce Scottish folk music. They started the set with more aggression and ferocity than I have seen from them before. They seemed to be on a mission to make people pay attention. Playing with a band like Deertick’s a pretty great opportunity to be heard and these guys never fail to take the opportunity to make sure people hear and enjoy their music. A perfect support for Deertick, their music evokes thoughts of the harshest of Scottish winter nights. But there’s a real warmth that underpins there music and makes me think that no matter how hard the storm blows the fire at home is waiting with a nice glass of honey mead! ‘Slow Dance’ gets me every time I hear it. What a wonderful song. And the set is full of them. I even purchased their demo/ep…..what is it guys?…….and am very much looking forward to listening to it today. I’ve seen them 3 or 4 times now and have never failed to enjoy their set. Last night was them at their best. Really tight, really ferocious and really good. - The Steinberg Principle (Review from 4th Dec 2009)
