OUR NEW SINGLE – 28.10.16

Canaries will feature on Let's Set Sail's new EP, due to be released in 2017.



Let's set sail


Let’s Set Sail 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 these humble beginnings, the project has evolved into a 4-piece band, with the additions of Marian Hughes and Robert Molumby. The band produces well-crafted electronic folk songs that contain bright synths, dynamic beats, beautiful piano, lush vocal harmonies and honest, relatable lyrics that permeate the music with a distinctly Irish 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.
