Earlier this week, a band i follow on over on twitter, Sacred Animals (whom i love to pieces), posted up a link to a fellow Irish band who were offering up their latest EP for free on their BandCamp page.
the band is called Deaf Joe, and the EP; The Softest Touch.
Deaf Joe take a bit of a musical cue from bands like Doves and Elbow. if you took the sense of constant motion out of a Doves track and then stripped it bare, you’d get something close.
the standout tracks here are most certainly the EPs opener, The Softest Touch (Official Video), a gorgeous song that much like its video, boasts of old memories romantically looked back upon; and the devastatingly stark closing track, Black.
at a price of FREE you’ve got nothing to lose by giving this wonderful band a chance.
