Bio

The Mariner’s Children include members of Peggy Sue, Laura Marling, Sons of Noel and Adrian, Alessi’s Ark, and Eyes & No Eyes. Drawing inspiration from Chris Taylor’s (Grizzly Bear) approach to production, Angels of Light, and Pentangle amongst others, their music has at the same time all the immense instrumentation of Arcade Fire and the subtlety of the likes of Iron & Wine and Bonnie Prince Billy. Songs drift from sparse, delicate understatement to thunderous intensity in the blink of an eye. Lyrically, Benedict Rubinstein creates incredible confessional tales, often with an underlying darkness. “I’ve no wish to die, I’ve no wish to leave your side, but if I go before you then heed these words of mine- let my flesh feed the sycamore tree, in its arms you can climb if you ever feel you’re missing me.”

Sycamore was produced and recorded by Ian Grimble (The Manic Street Preachers, Beth Orton, Communion, etc) at two different studios – Rockfield (a converted stable), and 2khz (a converted church).
The Mariner’s Children are a rare find, who have been in no rush to launch themselves into the public domain.
Their return has been every bit worth the wait - prepare for the long player later in 2013.
