The Lost Brothers – ‘Gold And Silver’


Irish folk duo The Lost Brothers will release their fourth New Songs Of Dawn and Dust on September 19 via UK label Lojinx. The record is their first since 2012’s The Passing of the Night, which concluded the album trilogy started in 2008 with Trails of the Lonely.

The album, a first in a new trilogy, was produced in Liverpool, where the duo teamed up with Bill Ryder-Jones to produce, with his former Coral cohort Nick Power contributing too. Ahead of New Songs Of Dawn and Dust’s release, The Lost Brothers have revealed ‘Gold And Silver’, a first sample of what we can expect. Passing with whisper rather than a roar (as is their forte), ‘Gold And Silver’ is a gentle, soothing sombre tune, with a warm and friendly glow. Softly delivered lyrics present the most vivid of imagery, matched by a wonderful acoustic strum and pick. A perfect companion for cold and blustery nights that lie ahead, while safely nested away in a comfortable armchair beside a roaring fire, it will provide some respite. The Lost Brothers are continuing to do exactly what they do best, making timeless acoustic songs. A very welcome return indeed.
