The album is a stunning journey of hope, nostalgia, love, nature and connection - all delivered through a delicate and unique folk sound unlike anything in the contemporary Irish or UK folk market.

The New Leaves, like so many contemporary music projects, emerged from the post pandemic wilderness. Consisting of four childhood friends from County Down in Northern Ireland, the band blend lush, three-part harmonies, nature inspired lyrics and modern folk aesthetics to brand them as a new, unique force in the genre.

The four members came together to breathe life into an expanding songbook written by McKay, who attempts to capture the natural beauty, history, and mythology of homelife beneath the Mourne Mountains and the beautiful townlands that surround Carlingford Lough.

The New Leaves are:

Decky McKay – Vocals, Guitar.

Cian O’ Hare - Vocals, Guitar

Patrice Mc Kevitt – Vocals, Bass.

Paddy Goodfellow – Drums & Percussion
