Slow Moving Clouds
A profound recent upturn in fortunes has led Slow Moving Clouds, an Irish/Nordic folk fusion outfit, to release their second full-length via PEOPLE, a platform run by Bon Iver and the National’s Dessner brothers.
Lofty company indeed, and the lads’ sonic ambitions have escalated to match.
Trad instrumentation meets Scandinavian folk ideas and concepts, and the end result alternates between stark capture of moments between collaborators, to moments like lead single Trin, where an understated splendour underpins the evident joy these musicians take in their process.
