The Answer have released their new single 'In This Land'. Unlike the traditional sound of The Answer, 'In This Land' has a more contemporary stripped down folk sound utilising acoustic guitars, mandolins and layered harmonies. The single is taken from their latest album Solas, which came out late last year.
Vocalist Cormac Neeson says:
“The song is about growing up in Northern Ireland and the sense of cultural identity that such an upbringing spawns. It’s a very colourful and wonderful place, at times contradictory, at times tragic but always unique and oh so memorable. It’s something we’re all very proud of; our little land has been responsible for its fair share of heroes, criminals and stars!”
