British singer-songwriter Roo Panes has just released the single version of ‘Ophelia’ from his latest album ‘Quiet Man’ which was released June 18th via CRC Records, disappointingly not a concept album about Iain Duncan Smith but instead sounding like Jeff Buckley on an MDMA comedown. Roo’s third album which we described as “uniformly beautiful and moving”, his music has been streamed over 180 million times on Spotify – pity those who have never had a track played once.
