Tree Burst In Snow is the sophomore album by Scottish Indie group Admiral Fallow out on Nettwerk Music Group on the 21st of May.
Recorded and mixed by Paul Savage at Glasgow’s Chem 19 (Mogwai, King Creosote) and mastered by Greg Calbi (Bon Iver, The National, Battles) at Sterling Sound NYC, the album, like their critically acclaimed debut Boots Met My Face, is a 10 track affair.
Beetle in the Box, the first single from the album, released on March 5th on strictly limited white label vinyl and download has received support from BBC Radio1’s Huw Stephens, 6 Music's Lauren Laverne, Radio 2's Janice Long and XFM's John Kennnedy. The band have also recorded a Daytrotter Session, broadcast March 5th with more sessions in the pipe line.
The band have recently sold out a headlining show at Glasgow's ABC, and a joint headline show with We Are Augustine's at London’s Borderline, both to acclaimed reviews. With a huge tour of the UK announced, along with a "homecoming" gig at Glasgow's legendary Barrowlands on the 8th Dec, 2012 should see Admiral Fallow reach the heights their talent so deserves.
Filtering imagery of war through perspectives that prefer the positive over wallowing in pity, Admiral Fallow have, with Tree Bursts in Snow, realised their most compelling statement of intent to date. A bright, breezy listen on "Guest of the Government" (squint and it could be The National with a burr), affectingly intimate on "Brother" (perhaps the most personal lyric herein), it's a set that conveys a raft of emotions with accomplished poise - with the sort of experience that can only come from hard graft.
