Admiral Fallow were born out of a Glasgow based musical collective in 2006. A gathering of precocious talent fronted by the young foot-stamping, utterly captivating singer-songwriter Louis Abbott. The band meld and indie-rock lineup with clarinet, flute, double bass and two jaw-dropping vocals to deliver their joyous, heart-filled, and beautifully eccentric and finely crafted songs.
They are fiercely proud of their roots with Abbott's Scottish accent to the fore in his singing, contrasting magically with the Northumbrian tones of Sarah Hayes, the second vocalist.
Their sets go from simple voice and guitar compositions, through stomping Wilco-esque tunes, to riotous cacophonies of bluring guitar; all sung with delightful abandon.
