One year after their stage debut, LARÚN now proudly present their long-anticipated first studio album When The City Sleeps. On their first album, the probably most international band in the folk scene unites powerful emotions, rich diversity and technical perfection.
Last year, their first elaborately produced music videos scored more than ten thousand clicks within a very short time and thus set the bar of expectations very high. However, for the production of their EP, Larún again successfully combine passion, a keen musical sense and technical know-how.
The band teamed up with the Glasgow sound engineer Andrea Gobbi, famous for his works with renowned musicians like Ímar, Talisk, Hamish Napier and Treacherous Orchestra. The result is half an hour of energetic traditional Irish music interwoven with many original compositions to create a refreshingly modern form of folk music. The cover was designed exclusively for the band by artist Sarah Thomsen.
