Feldspar return with four single releases supported by their Compass tour. This Autumn, the band will present a single a month, starting with Song Without A Chorus, released via Green Tape
Although the four songs don't tell an overarching story, together they demonstrate the band's concern with songs that explore different sides of the human condition: heartache, lust, mortality, and anger. The opening single Song Without a Chorus is about loss and memory and its influence on writing and creativity. There's a beautiful melancholy about the track, which combines these themes with the beautiful, rich melodies that have become Feldspar's calling card. Although they grew up listening to acts like Nick Cave, and indeed there is a tinge of that dark folk feel throughout their songs, Feldspar have given their influences a modern twist creating an achingly beautiful indie sound that sits easily alongside lyrical indie bands such as The National and Villagers.
The Compass tour will see the band perform in the North, South, East and West as the band present their powerful live show to audiences around the UK. Their ambitious plan to release a single a month combined with their Compass tour is a glimpse into how far the band have come since their inception just over two years ago when Will Green, Ben Lloyd-Evans, Woody Feldwick, James Forster and Jonny Burgess first started performing together.
The band will play a single launch show at the Slaughtered Lamb in London on 4th September to promote the first of this series of singles, which will be the perfect chance to experience Feldspar's impressive live performance which sets their melancholic songwriting against their engaging and lively stagecraft.
Song Without A Chorus is released via Green Tape Records.
