Opening with a choral harmony that any church would be proud to have leading their congregation The Shee make their mark with the Gospel tinged “Trouble” before gearing up a notch with the pump and push of Amy Thatcher’s accordion and lead vocal provided by Laura-Beth Salter who also adds some tasty mandolin to proceedings a little later. Joined by the driving rhythms of Shona Mooney (fiddle), Olivia Ross (fiddle/viola) and Lillias Kinsman-Blake on flute it’s a great start to a refreshing album. Much like the Poozies of whom comparisons will likely be drawn this feisty sextuplet also includes the electro-harp of Rachel Newton added to the mix featured on the instrumental track “Shotgun”. Decadence may not be the kind of recording to give you an adrenalin rush but having said that if your looking for something that is classy with a bit of thought given to the arrangements you’ll find it a rewarding listen. Proving that they’re not just a bunch of pretty faces (although they are!) as depicted by Lauren Bishop’s illustration on the sleeve the girls would do justice to any M&S advert and at least they’re talented.
