Clannad became synonymous with Celtic new age in the late 1980s and '90s. Adding layers of sometimes ethereal, sometimes majestic-sounding synth pads and drum loops to traditional instruments and electric guitars, the band became a signpost for other acts during the Celtic music boom at the end of the last century and the dawn of the new. After winning a Best New Age album Grammy in 1998 for Landmarks, the band took an extended break. They issued a live album in 2011, but Nádúr marks their formal return to studio recording after 15 years away. These 13 tracks — ten originals, two traditional Gaelic tunes, and a Scottish air — meld Irish music's heritage with contemporary jazz, electronic new age, and soft pop and rock. While many acoustic instruments adorn these songs — mandolas, pennywhistles, bodhrans, harps, and acoustic guitars — so do electric six-strings, fretless basses, synths, and subtle loops adding edges and underscoring the band's mastery of textures to frame its melodies. While Nádúr breaches no new terrain, it will prove a welcome return for Clannad's international legion of fans.
Good to Be Back!
Nadure will be Clannad's first full length album in 15 years, I'm pretty excited about this release! These five musicians have shaped celtic music as we know it and I'm so thankful that they are back. It's been too long! Welcome back Clannad and thank you for blessing us with more amazing music!
Such well constructed compositions and comforting ethereal style. Delighted to say the least about this new album. So long over due from one of my very favourite groups.
My Favorite Group for 20 years...
I fell in love with Clannad when I was 16 - it was the most beautiful music I'd ever heard and it also inspired me to be a Celtic musician myself. Their music is the kind that I'd wear the tape out listening to. I got to meet Moya back in 2003 in Portland, Oregon and she was so friendly and wonderful. The presence of all five original members being on this recording is amazing and brings back their original sound in a new way. All their versatile talent is here and they sound just as gorgeous as always. I'm so happy to have this new recording to listen to and share with my family - thank you so much! :)
