In October 2014, Northern Assembly released their debut EP, and they play spirited and organic music. They draw influence from bands such as Simon & Garfunkel and Mumford & Sons. The lyrics are rich and complex, with deeply poetic flourishes, and are about life in general, and concepts such as peace, hope, grace and poetry specifically. Northern Assembly interpret folk music in the finest Scandinavian tradition.
