One of the new discoveries of Hard Working Class Heroes ’11, The Depravations are a four piece indie folk band based in Galway. Since forming in 2007 they have released two EPs and are currently recording their debut album, expected before the end of 2011.
Far from their name would suggest, they make gentle indie-folk music with rich sounds, stories and harmonies. Inspired from a combination of influences; ’50s and ’60s, surf music, old country and blues, it is quite reminiscent of some of the softer numbers from The Coral et al.
Their Mosey EP is free to download from BandCamp and a debut album is due before the end of 2011.
