The last seven years have shown Port Erin to be one of the most productive and consistent bands on the circuit with the release of three EP’s – The Weight Of This (2007), The Deads (2008) and Threee (2013) and two full length albums – I’ll Be On The Common (2009) and Wheel Inside A Wheel (2012). The latest two recordings were produced with Marco Migliari (The Beautiful South, Crowded House, Deep Purple, Doves) at the legendary Real World Studios in Box.
Each of these recordings has showcased the chameleon-like abilities of the band, each recording a snapshot capturing a moment in time as the trio experiment with their sound, pushing at boundaries and bringing new influences into the mix. In fact, the only consistency between these recordings has been the universal critical acclaim that each has received.
Writing about Wheel Inside A Wheel music website God Is In the TV Zine stated; “as well as the recognisable shades of early Elbow, Doves and Jeff Buckley, the carefully picked notes and flourishing melodies are boosted by the jazz-funk punch of the rhythm section” whilst Delusion Of Adequacy described it as; “something of a minor masterpiece of Alt Folk that combines finely turned guitars alternating between accomplished songwriting and laid back summery grooves”.
