‘The Water’ EP released 28th October 2013 on Dirty Hit
‘The Water’ is the new EP from Fossil Collective, a Leeds duo whose music is an intoxicating blend of exquisitely structured songs and glorious, rich harmonies.
The group mainstays are Jonny Hooker and David Fendick, two multi-instrumentalists who swell to a five-piece for live performances. Entirely self produced, ‘The Water’ demonstrates the band at their most delicate; a four track EP awash with tangled folk roots.
The duo themselves recorded every sound on the EP from their home studio in countryside outside Leeds, which is reflected in their bucolic sound. “We’re generally more connected with nature and the countryside than the city centre,” they say. “We like the simple life and the outdoors.”
The new EP comes in the wake of Fossil Collective’s acclaimed album, ‘Tell Where I Lie’, which was released via Dirty Hit in the late spring. Written over the past two years, Fossil Collective’s debut immediately connected with critics and fans alike; ‘Tell Where I Lie’ was named iTunes’ ‘editors choice’, quickly climbed to number 1 in the US New Artist Billboard Chart and graced the pages of Clash, Q Magazine, NME, Drowned In Sound and Hunger.
Having recently returned from their debut US tour, Fossil Collective hit the road again in the UK this autumn.
