N-E-W: Sacred Animals
I'm playing catchup here but better late than never to the Sacred Animals party. This mysterious Wexford man released this debut E.P back in August. Nialler9 hit the nail on the head saying it sounds like Radiohead & Bon Iver without sounding too much like either, while State said the exact same thing, pretty much word for word, so I don't feel bad plagiarising their reviews. Creepy sounds, beautiful voice, strangely comforting. Listen and decide for yourselves. For me, best Irish music I've heard in a while. Scrap that, best band I've heard all week.
