    Every now and again we feel the need to take a slight turn from our regular release territories. Step forward Runaway Orchestra with a self-titled debut album; a collection of ten cover songs that feature the beautiful vocals of Sophie Madeleine.

    Across it’s ten tracks, ‘Runaway Orchestra’ offers crafted cover versions each with a fresh folk twist.

    Opening with The Turtles 1967 hit, ‘Happy Together’, re-worked as a delicate love song, the track flows with lush string arrangements and Sophie’s warm and inviting voice. Further highlights on the album include a stunning cover of Wolfman and Pete Doherty’s 2004 indie success ‘For Lovers’, which keeps the original’s melancholy undercurrents whilst injecting a more upbeat and brighter mood with its careful instrumentation. Cher and Sonny’s ‘The Beat Goes On’ is transformed into a gentler number with subtle drum arrangements and interplay between Madeleine’s singing and the lead melody. Also on the album is a memorable cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘If Not For You’, where Madeleine’s voice hypnotises the listener with its subtle pitches and gentle folk melodies.
