Firkin // Finger in the Pie (2014) (ajánló)

Firkin is a band which any music manager would be happy about. They are young and attractive, including a hot woman on the violin – Lilly, who contributes her female fire. But above all, the band has two even more important qualities for the stage: Talent and enthusiasm that reflect in a dynamic show.

With their new album “Finger in the Pie” Firkin have now successfully transported the energy of their concerts on CD. The Folk is still unmistakably recognizable as an influence on the songs, with wich they also like to put a new unconventional spin on classics. At the same time, on the current longplayer they have increased the punk rock dose and the pace. You can also hear that in songs like “Could be the Pope” or “Molly Malone“. When it comes to arrangements and vocals, Firkin are not afraid to experiment and venture on inflected speech and influences from other genres.

As a musical ménage from Flogging Molly, Fiddler ‘s Green and Jethro Tull, that shines in a Baz Luhrmann film as a soundtrack, Firkin show their own style. Thereby, they also succeed in combining energetic party music and romantic songs like “My Love John” including the voice of a female guest vocalist.

Finger in the Pie is a recommendation for those who like classic Irish tunes, but want to hear power and ingenuity at the same time. These Hungarians are definitely stepping out of the line and are already unmistakable within the folk punk scene. So, let yourself be “firkinised”!
