#323: Woman's Hour - Conversations

Released: July 2014
Genre: Indie Pop
Label: Secretly Canadian

Three years ago, a little-known outfit from Kendal called Woman’s Hour released their debut, a double A-side entitled “Jenny/Human” and then, like many contemporary acts these days, promptly faded into obscurity. Or so we thought. Truth be told, Woman’s Hour didn’t just fall off, they went back to the drawing board, honed their sound and, if Hype Machine is anything to go by, set bloggers abuzz in 2013 as the sixth most blogged band that year. And then they came back with this, Conversations, a record which, like its namesake, works deeply on several different levels.
