Infusing Finnish darkness to Gothic Americana, The Gallows Dance is memorable and fresh sounding band in the dark folk category.
The bands semi-acoustic style ranges from murder ballads to dark roots, melancholic duets and old folk songs brought back to life. Dark female vocals, varying from angelic to demonic, are occasionally accompanied by deep, resonant male voice. The gloomy atmosphere is combined with rattling chains, twangy banjo, screaming guitar, harmonica, rhythmic suitcase drum, and songs that are guaranteed to make your feet stomp the floor. The band revives old folk tales and tunes, and keeps alive the tradition of story-telling.
The Gallows Dance live performance works well from smaller coffee shops to bigger bar venues. As long as the audience has room to move, since the shows will make them loose the noose and put on their dancing shoes.
The Gallows Dance was founded in 2017 in Kouvola, Finland.
