As sincere and lyrical as any track by Leonard Cohen, the latest track from The Lost Brothers nicely sets things up for the release of their new album.
The Lost Brothers have shared the track as they gear up for an extensive tour throughout February/March. They'll be supported by The Waterboys' Steve WIckham for several tour dates.
Speaking about the track, Oisin Leech said: "We wrote the song 'Halfway Towards A Healing' at the foot of Slieve Foy in Carlingford we spent a few days walking the lough and that song was written over whiskey and chowder soup. It was the coldest week of the year and there was a lot of snow on high ground . We just decided to let the storm clear and camped out in the town for few days exploring the old curiosity shops. This song came along. Gavin Wood sent us his idea for the video and we loved it. It was filmed directly across the Irish Sea from Louth on the shores of Liverpool. Ten years ago this month Mark and I met in Liverpool so it's a good circle."
Halfway Towards A Healing will be officially released on January 26.
The Lost Brothers play at The Sugar Club, Dublin on February 8. Tickets are priced at €22.50+ and are available from Ticketmaster.ie.
