EP Stream: Porphyry – Ursa Minor/Coming Home
A quiet gem comes in the form of Derry songwriter Daryl Coyle’s new EP Ursa Minor/Coming Home.
Under the Porphyry monicker, Coyle produces a brand of psych-folk that brings to mind the likes of Midlake and Villagers but that, when least expected, veers into unexpected territory. With vocal inflections that could, at a push, summon Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle), and with ambitious instrumental reaches into the more colourful expanses of prog, ambient and psych, this EP is subtly surprising and earnestly bold.
Have a listen won’t you?
