San Fermin - 'Sonsick' [Track of the Day]

by Hector Barley (Google+), 06 June 2013

Based on the credentials and background of Ellis Ludwig-Leone, San Fermin stacks up to be fantastic. Not only is the composer/songwriter a recent graduate of Yale University, Ludwig-Leone has worked with Nico Muhly, all from the musical Mecca of Brooklyn, New York. 'Sonsick' is a fantastic fusion between Ellis' classical influences and unadulterated pop sentiment. The song, driven by the unusual interplay between bold brass sections and smooth, soul vocals, ends up sounding like a delightful cross between Dirty Projectors and Sufjan Stevens.

The album will be released in September through Downtown Records.

    Brighton quintet Lion Bark claim to have met at music school only to have dropped out once they'd formed the band. Fortunately, on the back of their first song 'Two Prongs', it'd seem as though they made the right choice. The band's sound, led by Guy Bangham's velvet vocals and the band's sunshine harmonies, may be a faintly familiar one, but so too is it one of effortless elegance and beauty. [read more]

    Coming up with dream combinations of bands is fun and Heart-Ships are the nearest I've ever got to what I imagine this concoction might sound like. Combining the intensity and lush instrumentation of Arcade Fire with the dark-pop sensibilities of The National, the Leeds 6-piece have returned with their massive new song 'Pinhole of Light'.
