Lankum

Lankum

Lankum is an Irish quartet comprising Ian Lynch, Daragh Lynch, Radie Peat and Cormac MacDiarmada. The band have consolidated their reputation as one of Ireland’s most important voices following the release of their 4th, Mercury-nominated, album False Lankum (Rough Trade, 2023), which has garnered critical acclaim across the board and brought their music to legions of devoted new fans.

 

False Lankum is conceived as a single piece of music, comprising 12 inter-connected songs unfolding across an epic 70 minute duration. Drawing on traditional songs and primitive techniques, the band have created an immersive, psychedelic listening experience incorporating experimental overtones and rumbling drones wedded with classic songwriting, close vocal harmonies and timeless narratives.

 

Performing a run of sold out, scaled up shows in support of the new record, the Lankum live show has evolved into a modern day powerhouse, with the band’s acoustic instrumentation (uilleaan pipes, fiddle, accordion, guitar, tin whistle and percussion) and close-harmony vocals transforming into a vast, kaleidoscopic wall of sound.
