Come for the woozy folk tunes, stay for the Irish accents.
Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, brothers Harry and Alfie of the band Hudson Taylor
make beautiful acoustic folk music that really does sound like it comes from the rolling hills of that shamrock-green country. After being discovered on YouTube and making some cash by busking on the streets of Dublin and Cork, the duo began recording music and eventually released their well-received debut record Singing For Strangers
in 2015, named after their love for busking, and full of both lush and stripped down folk tunes.
As recently as three weeks ago, the duo released a stripped-down EP of five songs, their first new music in over three years, called Feel It Again
. Featuring all new material that showcases the brothers' multi-instrumental talent and ability to hit just the right chords with their emotionally charged tracks, the subjects ranging from love lost and won to the joy of being a touring musician.
That intimate emotion was only amplified in Baeble's cozy Brooklyn studios as the brothers discussed their bands origins in busking, what it's like to be a family in a band, and their hopes for the future of Hudson Taylor. "We're still brothers the next day," the two say, smiling as they detail their busy schedule of shows and touring that will bring them back to the US next fall.
