Lines - Part Two: World War One
1. Roland And Vera / 2. Everyone Sang / 3. War Film / 4. Breakfast / 5. Suicide In The Trenches / 6. Socks
These songs were originally written in 2014 for a project marking the opening year of the World War One centenary. The Unthanks decided to record and release them in this, the final year. The first track features Sam Lee who spent time researching personal stories from rural communities in the South West of England. The second is written by the singular Scotsman and beloved North East resident, Tim Dalling. The rest is poetry from the WW1 period that we have turned into song, with a focus on the lesser known female voices from the time.
