The Hungarian duo consisting of singer/ multi instrumentalist Ágnes Tóth and lyricist/ multi instrumentalist Mihály Sabó, brought to life in 2003, is back with their fifth studio album; Holdrejtek.

THE MOON AND THE NIGHTSPIRIT is known from their melancholic, but also danceable (medieval) folk. Their strength is that they can mix both wonderfully in one song and keep it balanced throughout a whole album. Centrepiece in the music is (mostly) the lovely voice of Ágnes and her violin, but she can only shine as long as Mihály is playing his acoustic guitar and sometimes whispers in the background (like in Álomszovo or Mikrokozmosz pt. 1). If you compare Holdrejtek with their earlier albums the progression is in the details.

The songs sound more compact, the atmosphere sparkle a bit more and the production is great. In fact, it’s good that THE MOON AND THE NIGHTSPIRIT hasn’t changed much. For them it’s better not to change a winning team. No concessions, but doing what you are good at. Holdrejtek is again a great THE MOON AND THE NIGHTSPIRIT album.
