Frances Luke Accord “Maria” – Listen

On stage Nicholas Gunty and Brian Powers are Frances Luke Accord, a duo that is all about delicate finger-picked guitar and close harmony vocals.  It’s a timeless sound that inevitably leads to Simon & Garfunkel comparisons, and it’s true that there’s plenty of poetry in the lyrics of new single ‘Maria’ with arresting images of a love that is strong enough to illumine a  darkened world “if the sun goes dark someday / all the stars fall out from space / oh, solace me, my enlightened one / with no stars and with no sun”.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
