Basciville's sound is constantly evolving as they continue to hone their craft as skilled musicians to create something truly unique, evoking the wilderness theme within Irish songwriting.
Brotherly multi-instrumental duo Basciville are premiering their new single 'Calvary' - taken from their highly-anticipated upcoming debut album Hymns To The Air.
Hymns To The Air is set for release in early 2021, with the cinematic 'Calvary' visuals created and shot in the pair's Wexford hometown.
"Calvary is about the connections between physicality and memory," Basciville explain about their latest single. "How we allow ourselves to crave beyond accurate recall, blurring the lines around a physical connection and elevating it beyond what it was. In essence, nostalgic lust. It also looks at the emotional inconveniences we allow ourselves to suffer in the name of touch and want".
The captivating visuals for 'Cavalry' were shot and directed by Basciville themselves, utilising gripping vocals with a raw edge with stunning east coast scenery mixed with red and blue shades of colour.
Cillian and Lorcan Byrne started their musical journey four years ago, combining raw emotive lyrics, paired with intense percussion and dark orchestral harmonies.
Basciville independently released their debut EP 'Blues in Red' in 2016, receiving major critical acclaim.
The follow-up EP - 'For All Lost Youth' - arrived in 2019 and featured lead track 'Post Youth' which received national and international radio support.
Having performed headline shows throughout Ireland and Europe and appearing at countless festivals, the pair have cemented their reputation as an exciting live act with an ever-growing fanbase.
