Reviews for 'Bunny and the Bull' Original Soundtrack by Ralfe Band
"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
"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
"The music is wonderfully evocative. Twinkling piano, gypsy violins, stirring percussion and lilting horns take you from Victorian music halls to Eastern European folk dances and on to Spanish fiestas. Enchanting." ✭✭✭✭ THE SUN
"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
"One of the best original soundtracks of recent years and a great album in its own right." ✭✭✭✭✭ ALLGIGS
"Regardless of whether they're associated with the images in the film, these sounds generate splashes of vivid imagery inside the listener's head - a reminder that the songs on Ralfe Band's first two albums were marked by a cinematic and dramatic nature. Bunny and the Bull works both as music and as film music, with a flair for the latter that makes further film work likely." SOUNDS XP
Brief selection of other reviews
"A whiskey-soured folk trip, from east to west. Ralfe's moon-eyed beauty is simply the work of one vivid imagination." 'Swords' album review ✭✭✭✭ MOJO
"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." MUSIC WEEK
"Cinematic psychedelia. Menacing gypsies who might just steal you away." PLAN B
"an inspired set of star-gazing psychedelia" 'Swords' album review ✭✭✭✭ METRO
"chaotic and quirky.a law-unto-itself blend.Works for me." 'Swords' album review ✭✭✭✭ THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
"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." 'Attic Thieves' album review THE QUIETUS
"One can imagine much of it accompanying the work of David Lynch: there's an uneasy surrealism about it, a sense that despite all the pretty melodies, something nasty lurks within." 'Attic Thieves' album review THE GUARDIAN
"Its difficult to tell who they've been listening to." JOHN PEEL
