ICYMI: CARNIVAL MOON – Our Little Hourglass
Last night I had the opportunity to check out Toronto/Dublin indie-folk outfit CARNIVAL MOON – and when a band pulls out a full-size harp as part of their main stage act, you know you’re about to see something special.
After it was accidentally leaked in August 2011, the current trio (once a quartet) set out to officially release their debut EP Our Little Hourglass a few months ago back in November. Fittingly, it’s harp and violin heavy with some minimalist percussion work and an array of synths and layered vocal harmonies – really beautiful stuff; check it out in the embed below.
The group apparently has a full-length in the works and they’re set to hit the studio in the spring this year for a hopeful fall release.
If some prominent harp-playing is up your alley, stay tuned for more CARNIVAL MOON news, or keep tabs on the group over on Facebook.
