From the foggy apprehension of ‘Taking The Wheel’ to the golden wanderlust of “Far Away The Hills Are Green’, the songwriting duo of Laura Quirke (Lemoncello) and Joshua Burnside bares beautiful, imagery laden folk music. Their partnership culminates on the release of their EP ‘In The Half-light’.
A diverse four track record that explores the tension between longing for a better life and accepting the here and now. The faces and stories they conjure through their spellbinding mix of alternative music, found sounds, and Irish folk are universal, thrust into the world in search of an escape from the confinement of their realities.
Pitching between the sublime and the strained, ‘In The Half-light’ is powered by the traditions of Americana and Irish folk but has its eyes fixed squarely upon new horizons. Gently rambling through the Californian vistas or rainswept back roads, Burnside and Quirke’s songwriting transports you into the same unknowns as their dramatis personae. And no track symbolises this more than the release’s lead single ‘Rana The Fortunate’, the duet that inspired the partnership.
