The Unthanks have a two-page article/interview in today's Review section of the Observer. Interesting stuff about their folk influences, their forthcoming new album, and slight digs at the "nu folk scene of West London " (Mumford and Sons etc.)

lol the term nu folk is so odd for me. If you take it that the term came from nu metal etc. Nu metal was a new sound is nu folk? Im not so sure. Its more like a popularising of folk? So maybe Pop folk?
