Hozier – Take Me To Church

Sound and images seem congruent – dark, tortured, strong, rich – but lyrics less obviously so, as a paean for a lover who causes one to reassess personal values is laid over a short film on love, hate, intolerance and, eventually, brutal violence. Akin to Band of Horses in the chorus but soulful folk poetry in between. There is a lot going on here and this young Irish musician is one to watch.
