They nurture and synthesise this material with sensibilities drawn from drone, free improvisation, contemporary classical and metal; weaving this through with a deep sense of the ways in which traditional music holds queer histories, proto-feminist narratives and the voices of those who, by their labour, create the wealth of the world.
They are simultaneously traditional and experimental; seeing folk music, not as an archaeological artefact to be unearthed, but as a living communal activity. Inviting and generous to those it speaks to.Their latest critically acclaimed record ‘The Water is the Shovel of the Shore’ has been championed by The Wire, Folk Radio, Tradfolk and was named one of the albums of the year by The Quietus. It is their third public release. They are currently working on their fourth release, as well as many other nebulous projects and ideas across the collective.
