The Monaghan, Clare and Dublin quartet of Kevin Murray, Hannah Ryan, Shay Sweeney and Robert Campbell create original and imaginative music by combining folk, classical and traditional influences with gruff and angelic vocal harmonies.
Pine the Pilcrow’s new single ‘If It’s True’ falls into the haunting ambient folk category.
Their previous 2 EP’s saw the fresh faced band grow in sound as well as band, enlisting percussionist Shay Sweeney to help bring a more dynamic, fuller and epic sound to this release.
The release of their self-titled debut EP in March 2016 saw them nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2016 Pure M awards, winning The Last Mixed Tape’s Readers EP of the Year award and nominated for Best Song at the IMRO Christie Hennessy Song Competition for their ambient and emotive ballad ‘Don’t Need Me’.
The band featured performances at the main stage in the Body & Soul area at Electric Picnic, Body and Soul Festival, Arcadian Fields and Vantastival. As well as selling out their first headline performance at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght and added support slots with Joe Chester at the Unitarian Church and John Spillane.
This year Pine the Pilcrow are back with a bigger and more epic sound than before. With 3 singles planned over the next 12 months and a tour across the island it will be hard to avoid the ambient heart felt songs of this band.
With their April tour dates cancelled in Dublin and Derry, the band will pick up on June 11 in The Spirit Store in Dundalk with following dates in Galway and Slane.
