OUR NEW SINGLE – OUT NOW

Let's set sail

 

Let’s Set Sail is a band from Dublin that began as a songwriting project for two university students, studying classical music composition. While roaming the streets of Maynooth with bags of both potential and cans, burning the ears off each other about their love for Sun Kil Moon and Four Tet, Warren McCarthy and Ian Dunphy decided it would be a good idea to sit together in a box room with a guitar, a bass and their voices.

Since this humble birth, the project has gradually evolved into a 4-piece band, with the additions of Marian Hughes and Robert Molumby. The band tastefully blend acoustic and synthetic textures to produce well-crafted electronic folk songs. These songs contain honest, relatable lyrics that often permeate the music with a distinctly Dublin flavour.

Canaries will feature on Let's Set Sail's new EP, due to be released in 2017. Last year, Let’s Set Sail released a double A-side single, Five of Trumps/Leon. These songs were digitally released, showcasing the band's new musical direction from their folk rock beginnings.

CANARIES

OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

The Canaries music video shows a bizarre tale of one man's dream to capture his artistic vision on camera. This 'vision' involves a forest, some shit clothes and a football trophy he won when he was about eleven. With all trust put in the hands of "video man" who will "put the effects in after", the odds are stacked against the vision resembling a work of artistic merit.

Canaries is a bright and energetic track with staccato synth attacks that lead to emphatic choruses of three-part vocal harmonies. The lyrics promote an appreciation of both the everyday and the profound, in order to overcome the personal struggles one may experience, following the innocence of pubescent youth. 

Canaries will feature on Let's Set Sail's new EP, due to be released in 2017. In 2015, Let’s Set Sail released a double A-side single, Five of Trumps/Leon. These songs were digitally released, showcasing the band's new musical direction from their folk rock beginnings.
