Cillian Doheny and Cillian King’s debut album Affinity brings together the traditional music they have grown up with and the music they have grown to love in more recent times. From delicate string arrangements reminiscent of Sigur Rós to cascades of sound from the ethereal world of Jon Hopkins, they have added an ingredient that is inherently Irish to the mix to create a record that encompasses where they have come from and where they are going.
“Atlas seamlessly blends traditional Irish folk elements with pop melodicism into something really colourful. Taut interplay between acoustic guitar and concertina, with world fusion rhythmic elements. It’s very cinematic music.” (Mark Lettieri, Snarky Puppy)
