Wandering Oak brings you:
• F E L L • (Lost Map Records)
Lose yourself in the forest of… Fell, the musical alias of Nicolas Burrows – an artist, illustrator, and creator of sun-kissed psychedelic pop dreaminess. ‘For The Pickling’, his Lost Map debut, is a lilting, woozy number, that transports the listener to a half-forgotten childhood summer and back again, in under 3 minutes.
Originally hailing from Blackpool, Lancashire, Nicolas cut his teeth in the early-00’s, playing in bands around the then-burgeoning Leeds scene (Crayon, All My Friends Are Dead, Vest For Tysso, Bear Driver, Super Eight), before starting to create his own project under the name Glaciers. In 2016 he mutated into Fell, recording There Still Are Mysteries, an album of haunting autumnal pop with Stereolab’s Andy Ramsay in the production chair. Lead single, ’For The Pickling’ is the title track of the resulting EP, which will come out later this year on Lost Map. Produced by Dan Blackett (of Bella Union signings, Landshapes) the EP features guest accompaniment from Dan’s bandmates Luisa Gerstein and Heloise Tunstall-Behrens, as well as the sonorous vocals of experimental performer, David Thomas Broughton. The live incarnation also sports Jon Rulton (Bear Driver, Dream Giant), Matt Giraudeau (dogtanion) and Dav Shiel (Beth Jeans Houghton & The Hooves of Destiny, Gruff Rhys, Malcolm Mooney).
“Beautiful, sheeny, witty, baroque pop…very very special indeed.”
- Lauren Laverne, BBC Radio 6 Music
