Who Knows Where the Time Goes? Cover art

The third of Fruits de Mer's end of year releases is an exquisite and emotive single by FdM newcomer Elfin Bow. Elfin Bow is singer songwriter Elizabeth Kearny. For this FdM single (standard black or pink vinyl) she fulfilled her ambition of a lifetime by recording this song with an orchestra. She collaborated with composer and producer Gary Lloyd and his Scottish Session Orchestra. The A side is an ethereal cover of Sandy Denny’s classic “Who Knows Where the Time Goes?” which Elizabeth imbues with a soothing and dreamy guitar that slowly incorporates the orchestra and takes off into the heavens. Many different artists have covered Sandy’s song over the years, and Elfin Bow’s new interpretation takes the lead. The B side is an Elfin Bow original song, “The Wisdom.” This acid folk song begins with Elizabeth on acoustic guitar segueing to orchestral strings that will soften your heart, bringing tears to your eyes, and if you are not careful, outright bawling. “The Wisdom” is a truly excellent song and this single is more than a fitting tribute to Sandy on the 40th anniversary of her passing.
