Thank Folk For That

There is something that makes Celtic music seem like such a relief from the ‘regular’ music you hear every day, and bands like NUA make that all more true. Rather than simply being an energetic collection of folk-type instruments, as you would expect, NUA’s back-catalogue is a whole collection of twists and turns, managing to capture an adventurous atmosphere with such ease that listening to them is like experiencing an aural film, with emotive music keeping you gripped from start to finish. Their debut album BOLD is out now, and has that rare power that is beyond most forms of music: it can lift a good mood, soothe a bad one and incite an eager excitement in the listener. NUA specialise in genre-defying, empathising music that you just long to be the soundtrack to your own adventure.
