With a folk duo exploring Western Canada together in their van, it is safe to assume what happens next. For The Rabbitts a British folk duo it became their new LP ‘Tall Pines & Tangled Vines’. Inspired by their travels the LP combines stellar songwriting, with their beautiful vocals.
The ten track LP is true folk, and is recorded entirely acoustic. The duo consisting of Odhran Linsey, and Lucy McKinlay incorporate many different sounds. Odhran can be heard playing the acoustic guitar and bass, mandola, harmonica, bodhran, and percussion. With Lucy playing the mandolin, mandola, guitar, percussion, and whistles. Both can be heard on the vocals with each song.
Most importantly ‘Tall Pines & Tangled Vines’ will take you on an adventure through the music. There is an expression and freedom to their songs that trace back to this time of exploration they’re on. Quickly through their lyrics one could be transported and lost in the wild as they sing those very words in the song “Wild”. The soft but sweet vocals, and the unique sounds coming from a number of instruments make The Rabbitts special and worth a listen.
With each song of the LP there is a theme of fun, love, and togetherness. Because of this the duo have a connection that is beautiful. The video for their song “Luna Lupe” is an example of the fun, and love you hear in their music.
In one of the closing songs of the LP “Tangerine Green” The Rabbitts sing “Although the skies, may be dark. There is still a light” Which is the best way to describe this album. It is a light. A light that should be shining on this duo. The Rabbitts are a light of love, a light of fun, and freedom. All of which can be felt through their LP. One can get lost and brought to another place through the lyrics, or even as Odhran plays the Harmonica, or Lucy the mandola. It is true folk and can make you feel something different with each listen.
