Holly Macve's much-anticipated debut album, Golden Eagle. With its spellbinding country and western ballads and devastating emotional delivery, the album is one of the most remarkably assured debuts of this or any other year, especially given she's though only 21 years old. The bulk of Golden Eagle was recorded in Newcastle at the home studio of producer Paul Gregory (of Bella Union label-mates Lanterns On The Lake), with extra recording in Brighton and London with her first touring band and Macve performing on acoustic guitar and piano. Yet Golden Eagle remains beautifully spare and delicate, putting Holly's goosebump-raising voice centre stage, beautifully controlled yet riven with feeling. Holly has previously supported the likes of John Grant, Villagers and Benjamin Clementine, and wowed audiences at festivals such as Latitude and End Of The Road.
