Blood Moon by Irish Folk Duo SAINT SISTER — Video Out Now

The gossamer-winged Irish folk pop duo SAINT SISTER recently release their debut EP Madrid which we described as “soft and yielding [in texture] … like twin leopards travelling with caution after unsuspecting prey —

Their unforgettable sounds are a fight between electronic glitches and ambrosial harps — all embroidered with profoundly personal lyrics — it’s a combination that Gemma Doherty and Morgan MacIntyre refer to as “atmosfolk.”

Now they issue a brand new video – Blood Moon – we had a listen:

Hum and heather. The natural tone of the windswept cliffs… and in the distance there’s the distraught pitter-patter of drums…

The clicketty rhythms are cleverly concealed within voice and pace. And the harmonies are oh-so feather-light.

This runs like dandelion smoke, drifting.  Left to free to fly, and airily rising into the mountain air.
