Fallen Angel – St. Christopher Medal DL/Streaming/Video single

  • Fallen Angel

The six-piece send their heart-worn, empyrean Country Rock rising into the vast blue skies of Highland Perthshire, where their music was made. Like ‘Joey’ from Dylan’s song, the album was finally ‘finished off’ in Red Hook, Brooklyn. “Hoof!” picks up where 2015’s “Sunny Day Machine” left off. Classic Scottish songwriting (TFC, Lloyd Cole, Trashcan Sinatras) and sweeping alt-Americana (GP, Wilco, Okkervil River) filtered through thrilling, melodic guitar and piano - deserts, highways, half-dreamed visions of rock’n’roll heartlands. From the opening cosmic struggles of “Fallen Angel”, through classic country rock epics like “Wayne, Moon Pilot” (“sheer class from start to finish” Scots Whay Hae), “Hoof!” moves across a landscape of unfinished moments from rock’s back pages, finding new things to talk about on its way. Songs about real life, about people you know – songs about the world we live in. By the time it arrives at the title track, the record has swept itself into a crescendo of optimism despite everything. With their second album St. Christopher Medal will surprise everyone and save the world!
