Day 244 - VULIN: Folded Hands
A powerful acoustic version of a song from VULIN's acclaimed new EP, Tethered to Sleep. VULIN is Fowlis-based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Craig MacLeod, who is also a music lecturer and programme leader at Perth College UHI.
VULIN is the artist name for Fowlis based Scottish singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Craig MacLeod. MacLeod has been in various bands and projects since 2001, with the most recent of these including the critically acclaimed, indie folk band, Dante: "...phenomenal energy and great songwriting" (Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music), and the alt rock band, Dead Fiction: "...a great gravelly voice that retains a touch of the Scottish accent" (Jim Gellatly, The Scottish Sun).
MacLeod's songwriting has been praised as work which captures "emotional
maturity and possesses anthemically charged moments, powerful melodic ideas and engaging lyrics" (The Daily Record). VULINʼs new music captivates with hook filled lines embedded across clever sonic palettes from a wide stylistic spectrum, while delivered with a vulnerable yet commanding voice that has a knack for finding the shaky ground between heart-wrenching, cathartic and ethereal, invoking names like Manchester Orchestra, City and Colour, Pinegrove, Bon Iver, Frightened Rabbit, etc.
