‘The multi-instrumentalism of the band is showcased beautifully….The whole EP reeks of summer with a promise of good times., all rolled up in the Dandy’s Americana/country/folk good time sound. The Dandy Horses build their songs on a strong foundation of sweet memorable melody and great lyrics’ – (Mark Reid, Creative Voices NI)
‘‘One of Northern Ireland’s fastest rising folk bands’ – (Matt McCreary, Belfast Telegraph)
‘Splendid band. I really, really like them.’ – (Ralph Mc Lean, BBC Radio Ulster)
‘Tales from Hard Luck Town’ is an 11 track album with most featuring a story or character relating to ‘Hard Luck Town.’ Despite there being a dark undercurrent, many of the tracks are also upbeat and lighter in tone. The album includes a murder ballad and other themes include homelessness, seeking fulfilment, being sent to prison (‘Hydebank Hotel’), relationships, and drunken antics. The songs have a relatable feel, often being shaped by the band’s life experiences and observations.
Their music is perfectly tangible for everyone. Whether you’re a folk fan through and through or you never thought you’d be partial to it, The Dandy Horses’ New album is definitely going to be your latest infatuation.
