The Annulments are a Dublin quartet (including one former Last Tycoon).
Their sound is derived from a broad blend of influences, taking in blues, folk country, dixieland, mountain minstrelsy, soul and rock and roll. Combined, these influences are met with an emphasis on the folk songwriting tradition; tales of mislaid plans, unjust love and labours lost.
It is an approach which serves them well and captured perfectly by their teaser track, ‘Birds Don’t Cry’. While it couldn’t sound further from what you would expect to emerge from Dublin’s fair city and wouldn’t be out of place on Deadwood’s soundtrack, it is a joyous sound & one with which I look forward to keeping an eye and ear on in future.
