Introducing: Admiral Fallow

Published on May 27, 2012

Admiral Fallow are one of Glasgow’s most recent musical exports, forming in 2007 and releasing their debut album ‘Boots Met My Face‘ in early 2010. Since this release, they’ve seen a steady rise in popularity that led to their music being used in well known American TV series ‘Chuck’, as well as an advert during the 2012 Super Bowl.
Their music is a subtle blend of indie and pop, throwing in elements of folk and topping it all off with beautiful harmonies in thick, Scottish accents. The release of their second album ‘Tree Bursts In Snow‘ in 2012 saw the band develop on their style, resulting in tracks such as ‘Tree Bursts’, a slow-building ballad which culminates in a euphoric chorus comparable to something by Sigur Ros or Elbow.
Through the years Admiral Fallow have worked their way up through the ranks of live music, starting out by supporting bands such as The Felice Brothers and Frightened Rabbit before making their way onto the festival scene with shows at T In The Park, Glastonbury, Latitude and SXSW.
They are currently touring across the UK, ending on May 31 with a show at Hare and Hounds in Birmingham (tickets) before a few festival dates over the summer including Dot to Dot Festival and RockNess. If you haven’t heard them before, it is definitely worth taking a few minutes out of your day to see what all the hype is about.
