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?
