THE NOTHINGNESS OF NOW
OUR NEW EP
OUR NEW EP
Let’s Set Sail is a band from Dublin that began as a songwriting project for two university students, studying classical music composition. The project has gradually evolved into a 4-piece band, tastefully blending 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.
Let's Set Sail have recently released their latest EP 'The Nothingness of Now'. Listen here.
Warren Mc Carthy - Vocals, Guitar, Songwriter
Ian Dunphy - Electronics, Synth, Vocals

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.
