Flook are like a well-oiled machine, with the many parts working in harmonious precision. Driving the sound is the flute interplay of Brian Finnegan and Sarah Allen, supported by the deft rhythm section of guitar and bodhran. ‘Flatfish’ is full of vitality and energy, from the outset the track ‘Calico’ sets the scene with it’s flutey fruity antics. ‘Eb reels’ moves the sound into overdrive, with a frantic cascade of intricate flute parts. Slower and more reflective moods are captured in ‘The Gentle Giant’ and ‘Flatfish’. ‘Happy Jigs’ is uplifting and sprightly, while ‘Flutopia’ is a rich cornucopia of European styles which twist and turn at every corner. This album’s unique flute based sound gives it a cutting edge, which holds your attention from start to finish.
