||Reviews for Nature Laughs Last:
Waterhorse craft attention-grabbing, storytelling songs. They are also accomplished musicians who create great tunes. They weave their stories around a mix of multi-influenced musicianship and then deliver them with earthy vocals, creating a sharp edgy sound that demands attention.
On first listen, precisely played guitars and violin catch your attention, while the tone and phrasing of the vocals take directions you don’t expect... you might find overtures of The Byrds and Squeeze popping up in your head. However, any such comparisons evaporate, as you get deeper into the originality of Waterhorse.
The acid sharp observations... will keep creeping back into your head throughout the day... incisive lyrics will make you think (with) first-rate harmonies, imposing guitar and outstanding violin.
Buy the CD or roll along to Canterbury and listen to Waterhorse – they won’t disappoint.

Nature Laughs Last" allows me to make a very important point. If you have a limited budget you are better producing an EP with four strong songs than an album of ten songs that you know could be better. Waterhorse have taken the former route and delivered an EP that is solid from the first note to the final one. Waterhorse have produced an EP of contemporary folk that covers life, politics and people and laid down a foundation on which to build. The reference to Mary Shelley in the title track shows real thought and inspiration, the disaster of man trying to triumph over nature.
