YOU KISS BY THE BOOK

A lovely laid back sombre collection of rustic country tinged folk sounds reminscent of the likes of smog or bonnie prince billy at times… a lovely blend of traditional classic country folk and more modern indie folk sounds, complete with some classic slide guitar action.

Road Records

TRAZ

One of those excitingly wide-eyed, wide-eared, discovery moments of loveliness, totally restored my faith in the music coming down the line, not that it was all that lacking to be honest: there are plenty of talented kids about, but to see a group so young and so evolved is heartening. Traz are a group of transition year students from Dublin… heavily alt folk inspired… add some stunning choir style voices, a dollop of low sax and a love of the fiddle and you get a very irish take on americana alt folk.
