The Great Balloon Race – Cork folk/psychedelic
What you may need to know…
01. Last time we checked in with The Great Balloon Race, they’d just released single Chocolate Beans, a venture into jazzier climes.
02. They’ve finally put the last bits in order for their second album, Gently, Gently, releasing via May 5th on Leeside label KantCope.
03. Streaming above is the live video of Daryl and John, filmed by Blair Massie, as featured on the new long-player.
04. Catch them live on May 5th at Coughlan’s on Douglas Street, Cork, launching the long-player. Available for digital download or in a cassette/download bundle.
Thoughts: First thoughts on listening to the album in advance are those of a band finding their feet and moving with assurance into new waters.
