DWH (Deeperwiderhigher) ‘Follow Me’ UK CD (Counterpoint)

Sheffield’s DWH impressed me greatly with their 2 EPs, effortlessly fusing soul and jazz with contemporary yet timeless arrangements and all topped off with the mesmerising vocals of Genifa Vernon-Edwards. The tracks ‘Latter Rains’, ‘Darkside’ and ‘Still Here’ from the EPs are all present and correct along with other inspired moments such as ‘What Would You Chose’, ‘Soundtrack’, ‘Broken Pieces’ and ‘Seveneight’. The album may well have been a long time coming but it’s well worth the wait.
