Dublin quartet Lankum return with their 4th LP False Lankum, released via Rough Trade on 24 March 2023.
The new record heralds a new stage in the metamorphosis of the band into a modern day powerhouse, drawing on traditional and primitive methods to create bold and singular music that transcends its folk roots: an entrancing, widescreen sound incorporating experimental overtones and rumbling drones wedded with classic songwriting, close vocal harmonies and timeless narratives.
Their live show has evolved into a deeply moving collective experience, with the band performing together as though they are a single lung: sounds expand and collapse from indistinguishable mouths, lungs, fingers, keys and feet, while a wall of amp stacks push the intensity of the show to new levels.
