World - Celtic
On Three Sails, The Kissers reach back to the roots of the music that first inspired them, exploring the more nuanced and delicate elements of trad Irish, deftly blended with a measure of the sturdy Celtic rock the band was built upon. Using traditional acoustic instruments like the uilleann pipes and the bodhrán (Irish drum) along with unusual tunings and odd time signatures, the band has reimagined itself while staying true to its essence. Standards like Recruiting Sergeant, Blackleg Miner, and Paddy's Lament rest comfortably alongside fresh originals. For Foggy Dew, Monica Martin of PHOX guests on vocals, transforming a traditional tune into a work of breathtaking beauty and emotion. Three Sails is the sound of a skilled veteran band whose deep love for the music and relentless search for fresh musical inspiration have sparked a creative renaissance.
