Traditional Irish Music
Formed as an experimental-psychedelic-folk-punk-duo by brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch in the early 2000s, Lynched have gone through various incarnations. At the same time as their interest in traditional music and song grew, the brothers formed friendships with Cormac Mac Diarmada and Radie Peat. The four piece was formed and their debut album Cold Old Fire was recorded in 2013. Although fundamentally an album of traditional Irish song, heavily influenced by Irish legends such as Frank Harte, Planxty and The Dubliners, subtle traces of the group’s collective influences can be detected, from American old-timey music, ambient techno and psychedelic folk, to black metal, punk and rock n’ roll.
