Their guitars wind and mesh gorgeously together, their voices likewise. Songs like Condell’s ‘Our Love Will Not Decay’, ‘Eyelids Into Snow’ and ‘Two White Horses’, and O’Kelly’s ‘Piccadilly’, ‘So Freely’ and ‘Looking Up’ are as good as anything Ireland’s produced in the past five decades.2015 saw the eagerly awaited release of a new studio album, 'The Dark Dance' - their first since 1973!
