Description

I Draw Slow is one of the most unique bands on the Americana scene. Fronted by brother/sister songwriting team Dave Holden (guitar/vocals) and Louise Holden (vocals), this Dublin, Ireland-based group sits squarely at the crossroads of Irish and Appalachian music and has received critical praise for an original sound that bridges the gap between traditional Irish and American roots music. Joining Dave and Louise for this journey are bandmates Konrad Liddy (upright bass), Colin Derham (banjo), and Adrian Hart (fiddle). The band's new eponymously titled project 'I Draw Slow' starts with the arresting opener "Bring out Your Dead", a track that would not be out of place on Fleetwood Mac's album 'Tusk' (if the Mac played trad Irish music), with vocal echos of The Mamas & The Papas thrown in for good measure. They channel New Orleans trad jazz on the track "Trouble", replete with rudimental snare and mournful brass. And on the duet "Queen of the Wasteland", adorned by clawhammer banjo, fiddle and acoustic guitar lines, they draw upon Ireland's long folk song and storytelling tradition to create a neo-folk classic that is both timely and timeless.
