The Young Folk

The Young Folk a Dublin based band who last year released probably one of my favorite songs in the past 5 years Way Down South.

The Young Folks: Way Down South

A folk band, kind of, a band influenced by Folk, Alt Country, Traditional Irish Music and Instruments and bands like Fleet Foxes, Bright Eyes, Tallest Man On Earth and a whole vein of Country tinged folk driven by harmonies and live performance definitely. Their debut album “The Little Battle” has just been released after the band have been busy touring parts of Ireland, Scandinavia and America promoting it with an official Irish tour starting soon and culminating in a show in Whelan’s on the 28th of March. The album is a mix of folk/country and harmonies with plenty of influence from Irish Trad in the writing and structure. Some of the melodies have that uncanny ability of sounding like you already know them making them instantly catchy. The subject of the songs varies from fears of losing loved ones, to memories of childhood moments, all have personality and allow the listener to relate to the music. The album starts with the raucous country hymn driven by harmonies “My Friends” a perfect opener starting as they mean to continue. Other highlights include the broken hearted song of hope “letters” and of course the fantastic “Way Down South”.
