About:

Clann Zú formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1999 by a collective from several musical backgrounds, including punk, alternative rock, folk, electronic and classical. The group was comprised of Benjamin Andrews (guitar), Russell Fawcus (electric violin, keyboards), Declan de Barra (vocals, bodhrn), Liam Andrews (bass), Lach Wooden (sound manipulation). The band's dark and moody music featured a prominent role for violin and keyboards, along with literate bilingual vocals (traditional Irish and English) from Waterford de Barra.

The band recorded their early work in Australia, relocating to Dublin in 2002 to complete their debut album Rua. The played through Ireland in 2003 behind the album, re-released later that year in North America by the G7 Welcoming Committee. Clann Zú returned to Australia at the end of 2003 work on their second album Black Coats & Bandages, released in 2004 by G7.

Clann Zú called it quits in May of 2005 so the members could focus on separate projects.
