I was delighted to discover this little video during the week. Filmed by the staggeringly prolific (does the man sleep?) and always captivating Myles O’Reilly it features a young Dublin band called Traz playing a track called Leaving.
I first encountered Traz just over 2 years ago (see the blog here) when they were in transition year and only embarking on their musical journey. I’m delighted to see they’re still together and still writing lovely music, and even more delighted to discover they now have an EP available to buy on bandcamp (listen below).
Their folk influenced sound is enhanaced by judicious saxaphone use (to great effect on Let it Rest) and some beautiful vocal harmonies; perfect music for a cosy sunday afternoon. I see from the video above that they’ve done a session for Lyric’s In the Blue of the Night and from their site it looks like the live tracks will get an airing tonight, tomorrow night and Tuesday. Traz also did an on air session with Donal Dineen for Fresh Air back in Nov ’09 which you can hear here>
