A quartet of punks turned traditionalists, Lankum bring the energy of their hardcore roots into the Celtic folk mode, bringing passion, politics, noise, and drone to a genre where the change is very welcome. Defying genre conventions despite their use of fiddle, concertina, and pipes - relying equally on traditional “traveller’s songs” and soulful, fiery originals – Lankum are sharply original. A protest band with impeccable chops and brilliant songwriting, Lankum are truly and fiercely in answer to and a balm for our current era of political and social unrest. “Seamlessly weaves together a punk energy, slow boil neo-folk darkness, and plenty of real old-time Dublin street grit into one beautiful whole.” – No Depression “[T]he most convincing folk band to come out of Ireland in years…catapulted from pub sessions to sets on Later With Jools Holland.” – The Guardian
