Their new album Tides holds the same signature elements that Dublin brothers Richie and Jamie Martin have become known for; warm fraternal harmonies, thoughtful, instrumentation, evocative lyrics and beautiful melodies, but a visceral, more measured approach is also now apparent. Recorded in the wilds of Donegal under the watchful eye of producer Tommy McLaughlin (Villagers, Bell X1, Luke Sital-Singh) the album presents a level of honesty and maturity that is new for the band.
Now the brothers are setting off on a new musical voyage, showcasing a conviction that has been sculpted through live performance and the bond felt between musician and audience, and a close-to-the-bone artistry that has been forged over time. Hopes, fears, successes, failures, love, anger, sadness, it’s all present.
The band recently joined Irish legend Mary Black for a theatre tour of Ireland, as well as selling out shows across Europe. They are now filling venues in their home country as they showcase their new songs. The last few years have seen the band performing on television (The Late Late Show, The Imelda May Show, Other Voices, ) to millions of international viewers, and captivating fans with their signature, intimate sound.
