Admiral Fallow: Squealing Pigs
Admiral Fallow is a stunning new group, formerly known as Brother Louis Collective, born in 2007 and gathered round the precocious talent of the young foot-stamping, faintly maniacal singer/song-writer Louis Abbott. Citing influences including Tom Waits, Elbow, Low, Midlake, King Creosote, and Springsteen, Admiral Fallow adds clarinet, flute, double bass and four jaw-dropping voices to the usual indie line-up to smash through their joyous, heart-filled, orchestral-tinged and beautifully well crafted songs. Louis is proud to be Scottish and his accent is to the fore in his singing, contrasting magically with the Northumbrian tones of Sarah Hayes, the second vocalist.
2010 sees the new name Admiral Fallow and the new album “Boots Met My Face”. This was released in the UK 4/27 on Lo-Five Records, preceded by the single “Squealing Pigs” on 4/5. [last.fm]
