Early gigs in Dublin marked them as different, confirming their youthful ambition - equal parts pastoral folk and soaring post-rock crescendos - and bringing them to the attention of a small but growing audience. While their live shows garnered widespread praise, the lack of any recorded material was becoming impossible to ignore. A few weeks spent in a cottage down the country one summer resulted in hours of recordings which have been slowly refined and stripped back to their core elements - recorded, re-recorded, edited, discarded, reimagined - a process that has left only the strongest ideas standing. They are at once atmospheric and dynamic - movements that rise and fall with the voice and swell in the washes of guitar. Most notably, their songs give one a feeling of being somewhere else, aloft with the sound, following its voice.
Released in September 2014, Dandelion is the band’s highly anticipated debut release. It is evidence of a band who have found their feet in their own time. This maturity and patience is matched in the music, filled with a grace, personality and ambition that belies their youth. A long time in the making, this is an impressive opening statement.
