Traditional Irish Music
This is a track from quite an intriguing band that have gained a significant audience in their local town of Sligo and now nationally. It’s their fourth album and it doesn't fit with any particular genre that you might try to apply. This is a major bonus because their music has the sort of free spirited eclectic mix that can't help but intrigue. Reminiscent of bands that emerged out of new musical movements, they cast aside convention and have created their own organic music that borrows from a world inspired view of folk, gypsy and jazz with some traditional Irish elements also. They are NoCrows and the album is Waiting for the Tide.
Regarding the album they say that "it is a milestone for the group. The first release since 2010’s “NoCrows on the Moon”, Waiting for the Tide has more vocals than any other NoCrows album, with the addition of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Ray Coen to the NoCrows line up. It's also purely a "band" album: unlike the last effort, this record has no guest musicians. The music came together on two trips to Sligo's Coney Island. As Sligo-based Mallorcan guitarist Felip Carbonell calls it, "La Isla de Los Conejos", the island of the rabbits, it's a tiny island with just a few human inhabitants, nestled inconspicuously in the middle of Sligo bay, halfway between Rosses Point and Strandhill. The band went to Coney for its closeness, yet isolation."
