The Eighteenth Day Of May

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

There’s a fine line between folk and rock and it’s becoming ever foggier for me. London’s The Eighteenth Day of May might exemplify what I mean by this. Using instruments such as the classic autoharp and the viola along side the bass and guitar, the band harkens back to a sound that reminds me of a lot of Canadian classic rock. Heavy autoharp seemed to be somewhat of a trend in the scene but as the sound progressed and time went on it gradually vanished. I suppose that’s where my distinction of what’s folk and what’s not comes into play. Nonetheless, The Eighteenth Day of May are a band worthy of both titles and worthy of your time.
