Admiral Fallow - "Tree Bursts In Snow"
Admiral Fallow will undoubtedly be big news. How big? Well, think Guillemots, Snow Patrol or Elbow, and you are in the right ball park. This is music for wide, open spaces. Music to refresh the mind and do what great music does, tell a story. Joining the bill at this years Dot to Dot, playing all three dates, we take a look at Glasgow based band ahead of their sophomore LP release "Tree Bursts In Snow".
Sharing vocal duties, the rest of the band accompany Louis Abbott with calming effect, each articulate, none overbearing. This can be said with the musical accompaniment. Working in varied movements, each instrument crystal clear and defined. Their path does not veer for the entirety, staying true and concise. The positioning in their communal utterance comparable to Futureheads. It sits slightly in the eccentric, but remains fathomable, snuggled in the bands ethos. It is all so neat, in fact, that they are almost impossible to dislike. Music for all tastes, that's a pretty hard feat! This band has many merits, but most charming perhaps, is their deployment of the clarinet. The use of such an instrument expands on their already vast sound, inducing a crisp landscape, a skyline of their native Glasgow. They have captured the essence of their homeland, an impeccably hard task to accomplish. Because of this, they will undoubtedly be, big news.
