On their debut album Os, Slow Moving Clouds blend traditional and contemporary melodies, evocative Nordic vocals, and layered string soundscapes of cello, violin and nyckelharpa. The lush and darkly atmospheric results have drawn comparisons to Icelandic minimalist pop legends Sigur Ros and Irish traditional supergroup The Gloaming.Os has been hailed in the press as 'rich, intriguing and accomplished' Jim Carroll (The Irish Times); and ‘intriguing folk/trad of the highest order’ Tony Clayton-Lea (The Irish Times / Cara).
