Self-styled Dublin folk miscreants Lankum (formerly known as Lynched) involve the talents of brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch, who (legend has it) formed their own “experimental folk-punk psychedelic duo” around a decade ago. Whatever the real story, what we know for certain is that they’re the most convincing folk band to come out of Ireland in years, the band creating a sound infused with energy and passion. Mark Radcliffe has described them as ‘Anarchic, yet connected, rootsy and gutsy… I love their music, it is just so damn good!’. Who are we to argue?
