Hozier's much anticipated self-titled debut album was finally released in September 2014. The album contains songs from his previously released EPs, Take Me to Church and From Eden.
The recipient of much hype and praise for his breakthrough single "Take Me to Church", Ireland's Hozier does plenty to back it up on his first album. A soulful voice and a brooding mystique can get you a long way but fortunately, most of the material here is well-written enough to warrant a deeper look at the young artist many have labeled an old soul. Like fellow Irishman Van Morrison did decades before, Hozier (Andrew Hozier-Byrne) draws on the soul and R&B of Jackie Wilson and runs it through the mystery white-boy filter of Jeff Buckley, adding a touch of Bon Iver's rural indie aesthetic to mix into his own dark cocktail.
