Not surprisingly I discovered Lumin Bells via the Dave Monks show on BBC Merseyside and a good job too. I don’t think I’ve heard such a good folky sound since hearing The Connells, famed for ‘74-75‘. Citing Nick Drake as an influence is a good place to start for this six piece outfit. Have a listen to music below and they’re playing some shows soon too. The band members consist of Nico Hercules (vocals/guitars), Mick Dolan (acoustic/electric guitars), Danny Poole (bass guitar), Austin Murphy (vocals/keyboards), Nick Henham (vocals/acoustic guitar) and Colin Lamont (drums). Judging by what I’ve found they’re still relatively new but over the next few months I’ll be keeping an eye on their progress as they’re in the process of recording their debut album entitled ‘The Hidden Room’.
