Writing Down Things To Say is the third album by Nottingham, England's orchestral pop songsmiths Lorna. The quartet follow up their highly acclaimed 2005 record Static Patterns and Souvenirs with that rare album that eschews convenient classification — embracing an expansive sonic palette without sounding eclectic — in no small part due to the dozens of instruments the band is able to skillfully perform and weave into the record's nine compositions. Throughout Writing Down Things To Say Lorna tours folk ("Look Left," "Warm Architecture"), old-time country ("A Place That We Can Go"), chamber pop ("Mostly Good Times"), post-rock ("East of the Stars"), avante-lounge ("(I Wish I Knew) How to Build a House"), and even twee ("Monsters Are Forever"). Writing Down Things To Say is a record that rewards multiple listens, as the sundry instruments that are subtly and cleverly woven into the rich fabric of Lorna's songwriting surface and bloom.
