"Evocative, celestial, ethereal and, above all, extremely resonant, Landless will be ready to provide a warm embrace and whisk us to windswept, remote, rural Ireland and away from whatever the murky future challenges us with" - The Thin Air, 2018 Preview
The last five years have witnessed a new & potent wave of young Irish folk artists releasing some of the most arresting and meticulously crafted albums released on this island for many a year. With the imminent release of their debut album Bleaching Bones on new Irish label Humble Serpent, Landless are ready to join the likes of Lisa O’Neill, Lankum, Brigid Mae Power, Daoiri Farrell & many more at the vanguard of a new generation of musicians leaving their indelible mark on an already rich and bountiful Irish folk music landscape.
Landless are a traditional Irish vocal group from Dublin & Belfast who sing unaccompanied traditional songs from Ireland, Scotland, England & America in stunning four-part harmony. They have been melting hearts & building momentum around Ireland, the UK & Europe since 2013 and are set to formally announce their arrival with the release of their deeply impressive debut album Bleaching Bones.
Recorded across a series of reverb-heavy historic churches across Ireland (and the occasional underground tunnel), Bleaching Bones is an immaculately performed, deeply moving and haunting record. With only the natural room sound as accompaniment Landless have, with the help of producer/recorder/mixer John ‘Spud’ Murphy (Lankum/Katie Kim) created a timeless folk classic that will appeal equally to fans of early 4AD records as it will to lovers of folk music.
