LÁSZLÓ REYNOLDS' 'URALIC SONGS' IS A UNIQUE ODE TO TRADITIONAL FOLK MUSIC

The news is written by a mysterious person. Maybe Wendy Broccoli.

Tāmaki Makaurau-based musician László Reynolds (Ringlets) recently released his fourth full-length solo album, Uralic Songs - a dynamic collection collection of contemporary & folk songs from six languages in the Uralic family: Hungarian, Finnish, Mansi, Livonian, Komi, and Votian.

It is a unique spin on traditional folk - weaving elements of indie rock, country and alt folk together, László's smooth, gentle vocals the through line painting the languages different colours. 

Lyrical themes range from a wedding celebration in Votian (Üvä kokki / Good cook), a desperate lament in Hungarian (Szomorú vasárnap / Gloomy sunday), and a simple tribute to the birdsong that signals the unforgiving Siberian winter beginning to thaw in Mansi (Куккук / Cuckoo).

You can support László Reynolds on Bandcamp
