Gentle, intuitive, and mystical, the music on Faeland’s debut album All My Swim blends folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Singer-songwriter stylings and a dose of pop bring a captivating sound with instant appeal. The sound is acoustic guitars and double bass mixed with harp and violin. Ethereal, bittersweet vocals float across the mix and complete the picture. Faeland’s sound and mission pair up well together and create a beautiful vulnerability that is authentic and true. Fans of well-executed modern folk will want to find this band soon, while it can still be seen up close.
“Extraordinarily good” - Shire Folk
“A beautiful selection of original, modern folk compositions” - Folk Radio UK
Andy Skellam is a Bristol based musician who creates an idiosyncratic blend of surreal folk & dissonant blues using acoustic/electric guitar, banjo and his baritone singing voice. His music reflects darkly humorous & deeply affecting absurdities.
