BUY THIS SINGLE AND YOU WILL HAVE PRE-ORDERED A COPY OF OUR DEBUT ALBUM DUE FOR RELEASE LATER THIS YEAR.

YOUR PURCHASE WILL HELP MAKE OUR ALBUM A REALITY- YOUR HELP IS MUCH APPRECIATED, THANK YOU.

Wicker Bones latest single titled Ceannt Fort is the result of 2 years work and teases some of the new material to be found on their upcoming debut LP, scheduled for release later this year. It demonstrates an exciting new shift in the bands musical direction. Absorbing, swelling soundscapes, intense melodies and compelling lyrics hint at an album from a band very much at their creative peak.

1 – Roundelay
Roundelay is a poem written in 1976 by the Irish poet, novelist and playwright Samuel Beckett (1906 – 1989). The poem evokes images of a lone walker strolling along a strand and as the name suggests is in a circular form. The poem was set to music by Dylan Curran.

2 – Ceannt Fort Link
Following Roundelay there is a short transition based on a repeated chord progression written by Dylan Curran. The piece develops a rhythmic motif heard in the vocals of Roundelay which is also heard as a melodic variation of the guitar part of the following song.

3 – Ceannt Fort
Ceannt Fort is the name of a picturesque housing estate in Dublin city beside St. James' Hospital. It was written by Bryan Dunphy whose mother grew up in the area and combines nostalgic imagery with the perceived timelessness of the place. The instrumental arrangement was written by Dylan Curran. This song is dedicated to Maureen Harwood RIP.
