Some of you may have heard the music I make as Featherfin before, and now I have a new EP and video out. Like many bands, I think this latest release is my best. 🙂
The lead track is a tribute to the amazing aviation pionéer Helen Richey, and the video is kind of a mini documentary about her short life (1909-1947, only 37 years old). It features vocal and bass contributions from Jeremy Jensen of The Very Most and Michaël Korchia of Watoo Watoo.
Both the first and the second track shows a rougher side of my music, and they were described by For The Rabbits as ” glistening slice of 1980’s hazy pop-perfection pitched somewhere between New Order and Night Flowers” and that the second track “merges the synth-pop pallet of The Postal Service with a delightfully expansive trumpet sound and rattling, propulsive bass line, the outro taking on shades of the sun-drenched krautrock of The Beta Band“.
You can buy the full EP for 2$ on Bandcamp, and I will be very happy if you do! 🙂
For those of you who prefer streaming, it’s also on all major streaming services. If you are on Spotify, I will be very happy if you add it to your playlists. It will help me a lot to spread the word.
I made the video by colouring around 50 black and white photos of Helen Richey, animating them and put them together chronologically to tell the story of her life. Hope you like it!
I am also taking part in the Rose Melberg tribute compilation “Constant and True”, which will be released on February Records on Rose’s birthday, September 29th. I have covered her song “Old Days”, with Deerful on vocals.
