Tuath are a Donegalway powerhouse, “an Irish language, psychedelic, progressive, post punk/rock, shoegazey band, founded by Donegal man Robert Mulhern”.
I had the absolute pleasure of making Robert’s acquaintance, at the recent ‘Distorted Perspectives‘ Festival in Letterkenny – an event to be applauded in promoting it’s uniquely peripheral status, set against a staid and predictable, Dublin-centric mainstream.
Collaborator and co-conspirator Ashley Mobasser on “saximaphone”, compliments Robert’s guitar, vocals, production, and studio duties, the slack being taken up live, by a veritable rogues gallery of a supporting cast.
‘Amhairc Thart Ort Fein’, (‘Look Around Yourself’), is a refreshingly uptempo helping, of Irish language driven, psychgaze symphonics.
