about

Our new single was a cheeky experiment with improvisation during times of social isolation, recorded at our home studios.

Usually, when we play live, our harmonist Paula Camacho follows the improvising melodies, but this time we inverted things a little: she composed this beautiful harmony and the melodies were created by Felipe "Tupã" Monteiro (mandolin) and Leonardo Ramos (Irish flute / whistle) following that base – not usual at all for Irish music. On top of that, we asked our good friend Ivan Cavalheiro to add some weight with his bodhrán.

"Op At The Lo" is based on our set "Jump At The Morrison", which is present in each of our albums so far – yet every time iterated in a unique new way thanks to the long improvisations that permeate it. This time we stripped the set of the tunes and stuck with just the improv. The track has no beginning and no end: in fact, it can be easily looped – or it can be compared to a river that just flows forward, and to watch it go is to stay with that "flow" of the moment.

The artwork was made by our flutist/photographer Leonardo Ramos.
