THE MOON AND THE NIGHTSPIRIT "Osforras"

The folk played by the two Hungarians, Mihaly and Agnes is now at album number three, probably the most complex and ethnic of them all. Full of a mystical aura, with traditional instruments but led by violins and guitars, the music of the duet seems to come from a different world, some hundreds of years back in time, where nature got the respect and the admiration of every single soul. The voices of the two musicians create a fragile contrast that together with the orchestration gives the feeling of perfect symbiosis. Although it all sounds good, I think that the band stepped away from the atmospheric aura, somewhat melancholic, that it had in the beginning, and this seems to represent a big disadvantage, in spite of the complexity of the sound and the interpretation manner. In this very moment, once can think that THE MOON AND THE NIGHTSPIRIT is the perfect replica of the Germans from FAUN and I am convinced that, at least when talking about Germany, the Hungarians will find great success. My understanding is that we will be able to see them play this summer in Transylvania, and so keep an eye out; I would think that when playing live they are more captivating due to the undisputed dynamicity and expressivity of their instruments.
