If you haven’t heard of Basciville by this stage, you really haven’t been paying enough attention! Basciville are brothers Cillian & Lorcan Byrne from Wexford and they create a simple yet haunting sound that promises much for their debut album ‘Hymns To The Air’ which will be released next year. You can enjoy the single Calvary below…
Multi-instrumental indie/folk duo Basciville release their latest single ‘Calvary’ on November 13. Taken from their much-anticipated debut album ‘Hymns To The Air’ which is set for release early 2021. The song was written and produced during lockdown along with a cinematic video to accompany ‘Calvary’, created and filmed by Basciville and shot in Co. Wexford.
About the song, the band say; “Calvary is about the connections between physicality and memory. How we allow ourselves to crave beyond accurate recall, blurring the lines around a physical connection and elevating it beyond what it was. In essence, nostalgic lust. It also looks at the emotional inconveniences we allow ourselves to suffer in the name of touch and want”.
Brothers Cillian & Lorcan Byrne from Wexford began creating music together in 2016. Their distinctive sound combines raw emotive lyrics, paired with intense percussion and dark orchestral harmonies. Basciville independently released their debut EP ‘Blues in Red’ in 2016, receiving major critical acclaim. The follow-up EP ‘For All Lost Youth’ in 2019, featured lead track ‘Post Youth’ which received glowing reviews with national and international radio support.
