With Our Arm wide Open We March Towards the Burning Sea is probably best listened to at night. It has a dark, gentle heartbeat that opens up an atmosphere lost and bleak but through Elly May’s vocal there is always a sense of wonder, a thought that something otherworldly is occurring. There is an ambience to the record that throws it into the vein of some of the Kranky labels releases but it’s more orchestral than that, there’s more melody and a lyrical content that just seems to suck you in and hold you close.
