23 Jul

With their newest album called Tall Pines & Tangled Vines, Odhran Linsey and Lucy Mckinlay do an excellent job vocalizing a beautiful blend of acoustic and folk greatness throughout the album. One of the most powerful tracks is Wild which explores the idea of being on a journey and the path that leads to an individual’s map to answers. Alongside the beautiful vocal talents, the musical arrangement of the album encompasses a variety of sounds which include the mandola, harmonica, and bodhran. When referencing similar artists, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Devendra Banhart, and Iron & Wine all have close similarities to The Rabbitts’.
