Hailing from the north side of Dublin, The Rattling Kind are quickly becoming one of my preferred Celtic groups. They achieve a relatively modern sound using mostly traditional instruments. They do a very good job of injecting Indie Rock energy into the Celtic Folk genre in a way that brings life and power to politically charged lyrics. Though they are fairly new to the scene, they’re definitely picking up steam in Dublin, where they recorded a 5 track EP in the summer of 2013. The result was an album that captures the kind of energy you’d expect from a live performance. Good musicians pour their heart and soul into their music, and this is definitely true of The Rattling Kind. I think they have a great sound and I will definitely be adding them to my music collection.









The Rattling Kind are Eddie Sherlock: Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar, Tom Forde: Bass and Vocals, Ben McGinn: Lead Guitar and Vocals and Anthony White: Drums and Percussion. The band is growing in stature in Dublin and let’s hope that happens here as well.  There sound is undeniably modern but the influence of the Dubliners and other classic Irish balladeers permeates the entire EP.  For pint pounding pure rebel music, stand out track the, Rise Up has been on repeat now for a week solid.
