BALACH are a new Gael rock band from the Isle of Lewis. Nobody prepared them for the big, bad world, and so, they hid in their bedrooms and wrote some songs to see if it would help. It did not, but the songs are written now anyway.

BALACH explore the issues affecting the world, and their small part of it, in 2021 from their unique perspective. These explorations take place through the Gaelic language - a major part of their life in the islands. Their ferocious strength of feeling about these issues, as well as their wild surroundings and a need to connect with their culture inspire and distil a music that is as raw as peat.
