October´s gold in endless supply - late roses basking in the sun´s mild rays. Knarled tree branches laden with ripened fruit. And that clear, fathomless blue. If this were to be captured in music, then what could it sound like? Just perhaps, not so unlike "Fort of the Hare", Ranagri´s debut album on Stockfisch. Ranagri sound like a precious, unspoiled spot of beauty – the Irish village of Ranagri that gave the band its name. The four Londoners marry musical influences ranging from classical, folk and blues. If their story did not exist, it would have to be invented. A get-together in the pub – a band´s story comes into being. Guitar and flutes, harp and bodhran, bouzouki – and each time these melodious voices oscillating between melancholy and pure joie de vivre. One has to listen to the chorus of their voices – it sounds just as they look when dancing: in video, in concert, and, ah yes please, definitely the pub. Two men, two women of a special calibre. Folk and world music, poetry and songwriting: vibrant, pristine, catchy, mellow, with a touch of anticipation. For October - and every month for evermore.
