ABOUT

Ralfe Band is based around the work of English songwriter Oliver (Oly) Ralfe whose new album 'Son Be Wise' is released in June 2013. 'Son Be Wise' follows previous Ralfe Band albums 'Attic Thieves', 'Swords' and the soundtrack album for feature film 'Bunny and the Bull' (Warp Films).

PRESS

"The 22 tracks here recall the deft melancholy of the Amelie soundtrack... The kind of regally drunk spirit last heard on David Dundas' equally fine Withnail & I soundtrack.  Score!"

8/10 NME (Bunny and the Bull)

 

"The real test of any score is its ability to survive independent of the movie and Oliver Ralfe's piano-heavy work manages that easily... It's alternately sweetly hushed, spooky and sad, tapping Bernard Herrmann, Danny Elfman, European folk and gypsy song traditions in a bewitchingly evocative collection."

UNCUT (Bunny and the Bull)

 

"Catchy, interesting, and it's good to hear a contemporary soundtrack album with a bit of character... Another feather in their jaunty musical hats."

**** RECORD COLLECTOR (Bunny and the Bull)

 

"One of the best original soundtracks of recent years and a great album in its own right."

***** ALLGIGS (Bunny and the Bull)

"A whiskey-soured folk trip from east to west.. .Ralfe's moon-eyed beauty is simply the work of one vivid imagination"

**** MOJO (Swords)

 

"An inspired set of star-gazing psychedelia"

**** METRO (Swords)

 

"Oly Ralfe makes playful, well-crafted tunes that breath new life into forgotten ways of doing things... Treasures hidden in amongst the rafters, waiting to be found."

THE QUIETUS (Attic Thieves)

 

"Chaotic and quirky...a law-unto-itself blend"

**** INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY (Swords)

 

"Attic Thieves is a wonderfully rich romp through the fevered imagination of frontman Oly Ralfe… A unique and loveable album with enough dark corners and clever twists to keep the interest up through its twelve perfectly drawn tracks."
