CQAF: Stealing Sheep – Black Box, Belfast
Stealing Sheep’s acclaimed 2012 debut, Into the Diamond Sun won rave reviews with its ‘medieval-kraut-folk’ inspired sound. Since its release they have toured as guests of Alt-J, opened for St.Vincent in Paris, performed the songs of David Lynch at the Barbican and collaborated with the radiophonic Workshop on an original soundtrack to the cult 70’s science fiction film La Planete Sauvage.
New album on Heavenly records Not Real is grounded by bright melodies and insistent beats and unified by vocal harmonies; sometimes metronomic and chant-like, sometimes choral and pop.
They visited the Black Box in Belfast to play as part of Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival. Our photographer Paul Woods captured the night in photo. Support on the night came from Hiva Ova.
