Huffington Post Live Review – The Barbican London.

The pair which consists of Oisin Leech and Mark McCausland are on fine form tonight. Their latest album ‘The Passing of The Night’ was produced by songwriter extordinaire Brendan Benson and features members of The Cardinals was a success with fans and critics alike.

However, one would be forgiven for being apprehensive tonight, after all can album which features such high caliber guests transfer over into a live setting? Happily though, if anyone had concerns, fears were put aside within the first opening minutes as The Lost Brothers have the remarkable ability of making a large spacious room feel very intimate indeed. Their masterful blend of careful songwriting and tuneful harmonies soon won over the crowd, which were to begin with a tad hesitant to embrace the band. With a touch of the Everly Brothers and the confident stylings of Buddy Holly, The Lost Brothers have the distinctive air of 1950s Rock n’ Roll about them. Taking in everything from Chuck Berry influenced diner rock to maudlin music hall, The Lost Brothers make a lasting impact. Throw in a dazzling cover of ‘Moon River’ and a raucous performance of their own song ‘The Goodbye Kid’ and tonight they prove why they are very much the critics’ darlings of the folk scene.”

Doug Freeman’s ‘Pick of the Day for SXSW 2013’

Irish duo the Lost Brothers offered exceptional interplay between their acoustic guitars, building from deceptively simple folk structures with tight paired harmonies from their recent The Passing of the Night, while their cover of “Moon River” reinforced their affable Simon & Garfunkel style.

NICE! From Heath Music Blog ’10 ALBUMS I DEFINITELY SHOULD HAVE BLOGGED ABOUT IN 2012′

“I could certainly make the case that The Lost Brothers are actually folkier than the aforementioned other acts. But however you cut it, The Lost Brothers’ new album, The Passing of the Night, easily stands up to any other Americana success released this year.”
