Born at Oxford University, Stornoway has gone from friends jamming together and bonding over Teenage Fanclub to releasing an acclaimed debut album, Beachcomber's Windowsill, last fall.

On Windowsill, the U.K. quartet mix bedroom and studio recordings with equal parts, creating a rich yet subtle take on British pop. Listen to Stornoway's interview with World Cafe host David Dye and hear four songs from Beachcomber's Windowsill.
