Boa Morte – Before There Was Air – Vinyl

Band: Boa Morte

Label: Gare Du Nord

Format: Vinyl

Catalogue Number: GDNLP035



In 2019 Cork alt-folk band Boa Morte returned from a 10 year hiatus to release this quiet gem of an
album on Gare du Nord Records. The band fuse elements of folk, electronica, ambience and field
recordings – synths, drones, piano, wind, strings and effects combine to produce a rich autumnal
cocktail with hints of Smog, Will Oldham, late Talk Talk or a slowcore Beta Band.

“There are haunting moments to this album that one doesn’t often find.” – For Folks Sake 2019
“This is a luxurious listen, crammed with hushed hymns and magnetic slow-burners.” – Hot Press
2019 “As if Brian Eno’s ‘Apollo ’had been recorded by Robert Wyatt & James Yorkston.” – Rock and
Reel 2019
