A Dark Horse - These Butterflies Are Here

Dublin duo A Dark Horse are along the lineage of but don't quite fit properly into the modern chamber folk subset. Intimate while shimmeringly crisp, its overambitious impulses are kept carefully back so the song reaches somewhere but remains planted within the detail and how it all fits together - if, say, there's Bon Iver references to be made, it's the filled out expansive live sound around that first album. They released a self-titled EP today.
