Looking for a band l think l saw on here? (Not La's related)

Postby redlandsman87 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 6:39 pm

Sorry to clutter the main feed with non-La's posts, but figured this would get me the quickest answer.

About six or seven years again, 2011-12ish, l think l remember seeing a band on the Youtube thread or maybe in a related video from the thread. I've looked for the life of me but can't find them either on Youtube or here....so bare with me as my memory is fuzzy and details are scant.

All l remember much of the band is that they were two kids, young maybe 21-25, both playing acoustics. They sang sea shanty kind of tunes, very La's-ish, and when l discovered discovered them l think they were working on their debut EP. One of the kids was short, with black, straight, shoulder length hair. The other was much taller, with very curly, frizzly red hair...not sure if they were Scottish or Welsh or Scousers. They had maybe three or four acoustic tunes released at the time.

I think l remember seeeing their debut EP cover, with it fittingly being an old 1800's sort of ship sailing amidst very stormy, turbulent weather.

I remember at the time l was listening to a ton of acoustic Shadow Puppets and they could have led me to them as well...not sure. But any help finding the duo would be appreciated! It's been driving me crazy!

No, sorry...good band, but l think these kids were brand new at the time. I remember their acoustic video was a radio or studio session of some sort, high definition with a full camera crew. Gah...l can recall the melody and picture in my head perfectly :?

I want to say the Coral but I'm probably wrong. Never know, though...

Keep checking this thread to see if anyone has remembered who these two lads were. I can remember the video being posted myself, but have no idea of the band name or song title. Unless my brains scrambled, I'm fairly sure the lyrics of the chorus were about a 'river'? I also think the kids were Irish. Hoping someone has a better memory than I do!

Yeah, sorry guys, all good bands and tunes but no dice so far. I think tca70 has it right though with them being Irish maybe? Irish or Scotts...
