Lankum is an Irish quartet comprising Ian Lynch, Daragh Lynch, Radie Peat and
Cormac MacDiarmada. The band have consolidated their reputation as one of
Ireland’s most important voices following the release of their 4th, Mercury-nominated,
album False Lankum (Rough Trade, 2023), which has garnered critical acclaim
across the board and brought their music to legions of devoted new fans.
False Lankum is conceived as a single piece of music, comprising 12 inter-
connected songs unfolding across an epic 70 minute duration. Drawing on traditional
songs and primitive techniques, the band have created an immersive, psychedelic
listening experience incorporating experimental overtones and rumbling drones
wedded with classic songwriting, close vocal harmonies and timeless narratives.
