Admiral Fallow: The Idea Of You: Limited Edition Limited Blue Vinyl

Admiral Fallow are a band from Glasgow with three beautifully diverse albums to their name: “Boots Met My Face” (2011), “Tree Bursts In Snow” (2012), “Tiny Rewards” (2015).

In 2018 they developed an ambitious new opera, Navigate The Blood (co-written with Gareth Williams and Sian Evans).
They have recently put the finishing touches to their much-anticipated fourth record, due for release in 2021

Dragonfly” is the second single to be taken from the album ‘The Idea Of You’, following on from first single “Sleepwalking” in June. the album their first in six years, on Chemikal Underground. Written and mostly recorded in 2019, The Idea Of You is a captivating collection of songs – generously melodic, confidently executed and festooned with intricacies. In true Admiral Fallow fashion, these tales of friendship and carefree adventure take the road less travelled, rarely finding their terminus where it might be most expected. Warmth, empathy and contentment course through the nine songs, a response to its makers having navigated personal and professional challenges to emerge with their identity – both as a group and as individuals – intact.

The Idea Of You traverses Philly soul, sophisticated pop and guitar-driven rock, delivering humbly anthemic choruses by the barrowload. The recording of The Idea Of You took place in Chem19 on the outskirts of Glasgow under the aegis of producer Paul Savage, who worked on the group’s first three albums – Boots Met My Face (2010), Tree Bursts In Snow (2012) and Tiny Rewards (2015). Written and recorded pre-pandemic, the album inadvertently bears the hallmarks of a less fretful era, concerned with themes of growth and bloom in contrast to those of anxiety and fear.

Singer & lyricist Louis Abbott describes the song as “a sun-drenched exploration into how the things that really matter to us change as we get older”.

‘The Idea Of You’ is released on the 5th of November.
