"Folk Flecked Gems" The Herald “Really great… check them out!” BBC Radio One “Make you proud to be Scottish” Celtic Music Radio “Ballsy folky music” BBC Introducing Podcast “Fantastic alt Folk… Mixing traditional and contemporary elements” Music News Scotland Dante have spent the last two years working on their first full-length album, Wake, with Frightened Rabbit guitarist, Andy Monghan. Drawing on indie and folk influences in unusually equal measure, The Herald has described the new material as a collection of “folk-flecked gems”. Dante is essentially the creative output of Seán McLaughlin, who is also a member or The Birthday Suit (the side project of Idlewild guitarist, Rod Jones). Written in the Shetland Islands and featuring traditional fiddler, Vicky Gray (ex Aberfeldy) threads of traditional folk and Scottish indie intertwine throughout.
