They are a 4 piece folk outfit, who look like the sort of people that spend saturdays vintage shopping, and sundays hiking. Melancholy is the word that springs to mind when i hear their music. featuring Bass,Violin, and Acoustic Guitar. The Mourning Suns make really lovely yet sad folk music, which lyrically speaks of lifes ups and downs. Their style feels like a more authentic and laid back alternative to the anthemic mainstream folk style in fashion at the moment.
They've got an album coming out soon, and i picked up a copy of their 'Heavy Handed' Ep, which made for a good listen.
Folk can feel a little cheesy, and contrived at times but the Mourning Suns were very enjoyable and suited to sunny spring days like the one I saw them on.
