(SXSW 2018 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #2808: The Lost Brothers

By on Wednesday, 21st March 2018 at 6:00 pm

Mark McCausland and Oisin Leech, Irish folk duo The Lost Brothers, had a busy week in Austin during SXSW 2018, playing five shows in various clubs and on a boat. And they weren’t even there for the whole festival! While it may have seemed strange that they didn’t stay in Austin for St. Patrick’s Day, they had a good reason to be away. The pair instead travelled to Carrie’s current hometown of Tucson, Arizona, to do a sold out show there where they had recorded their latest album.

‘Halfway Towards a Healing’, released in January on Bird Dog Records, seems to have been their breakthrough moment, receiving top marks not just here on TGTF but also from Q Magazine, Uncut, Mojo and The Mirror. I described single ‘More Than I Can Comprehend’ as “catchy little ditty does its best to describe the wonderment of love”, led by Leech’s drawl. You’ll read soon our coverage of their performance of this song and a few others on the Output Belfast boat ride on Tuesday morning, sponsored by Belfast City Council. Their next live appearances will be in Australia in April. To read all of our past coverage on The Lost Brothers, go here.
