Washington Irving is a famous author from the early 19th century, probably best known for his short storyThe Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Far from the chilling tales of headless horsemen, in the little town of Oban, Scotland, his name lives on through the delicious sounds of an ‘electric folk’ band.
With an unmistakable penchant for the traditional, soaring refrains, and sweeping melodies, this is a band capable of capturing your imagination. Using rousing rhythms and choruses you can’t resist the urge to sing along to, they create a somewhat anthemic sound capable of engulfing you completely if you let it.
Washington Irving released their debut double album, Palomides: Volume I & II, yesterday.
