WE ARE THE WILDLIFE
QUEEN OF CORKBOTS
the Irish folk chanteuse presents a psycho-geographic journey through a collection of traditional folk ballads and original compositions, inspired as much by the geometries of London's urban fringes as the great rural landscapes of Mourne.
This mixing of traditional songs with her own compositions, coupled with the use of traditional instruments (harp/flute/strings, etc.) against subtle electronic backdrops, adds up to a record that is heartfelt, timeless and yet pleasingly contemporary in feel. her musical influences are wide ranging, from old school hymns, Prince, to 70s folk innovators such as John Martyn and Bert Jansch. Recommended listening if you enjoy modern day post-folk like tuung, juana Molina, and colleen.
