Slow Moving Clouds

Tue 5 Feb 2019

Slow Moving Clouds are a contemporary acoustic band based in Dublin combining roots in Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences to create a sound unlike anything you’ve heard before. 

On their new album Starfall on Justin Vernon’s new label People, Slow Moving Clouds blend traditional and contemporary melodies, evocative Nordic vocals, and layered string soundscapes of cello, violin and nyckelharpa. 

The lush and darkly atmospheric results have drawn comparisons to Icelandic minimalist legends Sigur Ros and Irish traditional supergroup The Gloaming.
