“Imagine a folk album influenced by the ambient textures of Sunn O))) and Swans, plus the sonic intensity of Xylouris White and My Bloody Valentine.” The Guardian

Born of years crisscrossing Dublin’s folk and experimental scenes, Lankum have an alchemical ability to forge traditional folk music that is dark, mysterious and transcendental. Close vocal harmonies, instrumental interplay and dramatic storytelling pin you to the ground and revive the spirit. With a diverse set of influences as disparate as Sunn O))), they show that folk music can be angry, progressive and is still a vital force today.
