Nos.ie - Without doubt, IMLÉ’s release is a ray of hope for the future of newly-composed music in Irish.

IMLÉ are an unconventional band with a unique sound, based around vocalists with very diverse musical backgrounds. This self-titled debut album by IMLÉ mixes poetry, rap, trip hop and pop music in a way that has never been heard before.

‘IMLÉ’’s release is a ray of hope for the future of newly-composed music in Irish, there is no doubt about that. Ben Ó Faoláin – nos.ieSubtly groovy stuff that doesn’t really fall neatly between any set of pews musically. Adoption of the mother tongue is but one aspect of IMLÉ’s sound. Mike McGrath-Bryan – broadsheet.ie IMLÉ are an unconventional band with a unique sound, based around 3 vocalists with very diverse musical backgrounds. Their sound mixes poetry, rap and pop music in a way that has never been heard before - particularly in the Irish Language. Fergal Moloney’s ethereal vocals blend with Marcus Mac Conghail’s intense punk poetry and the infectious flow of MC Muipéad’s rap vernacular. Founded by the band’s bass player Cian Mac Cárthaigh, their mission statement was to create something different that was uncompromising & honest. IMLÉ’s debut album explores the meaning of life, our relationship with the planet and finding hope within despair.In their short time together the band have been busy. Playing Electric Picnic, Féile na Bealtaine (Dingle), Liú Lúnasa (Belfast) and IMRAM Festival (Dublin), as well as TV appearances on TG4’s 20th Anniversary show and I Lár an Aonaigh on BBC 2 NI. Along with recording & releasing their debut album, produced by Karl Odlum & released by Gael Linn. At the beginning of December the band will participate in the international music competition & festival SUNS EUROPE in Udine Italy.
