I Am Kloot

Let It All In EMI

Manchester trio I Am Kloot follow up their 2010 Mercury-nominated album with a set of songs that sound suspiciously like Elbow. Of course, those clued up on such matters would know Elbow frontman Guy Garvey is the band’s current producer, meaning that added to I Am Kloot’s blues and folk-tinged tracks are gushing strings and orchestral arrangements, which fit well the songs’ desire to say something ‘big’. With age comes experience and with that, perhaps, the urge to advise people about life. “Don’t let the clouds clutter up your sky”, we’re told in “Shoeless”, and “the future keeps coming”, is the sage observation in “Hold Back the Night”. I Am Kloot have been together for more than a decade, with only ever modest commercial success. But the witty reflections and poignant poetry of Let It All In, along with the record’s luscious production values, will no doubt stir the embers of the band’s slow-burning popularity.
