We are having a wonderful time on tour with Wave Machines; they're such a fantastic band and it has been great to be playing with them each night. Yesterday we took a break from gigging to film a session for Live at the Village Underground, a new TV project that is run by Simon Raymonde of Bella Union/ Cocteau Twins. The whole day was brilliant and we can't wait to see the results. Below is a picture of the session, courtesy of Helen Meissner.
The track marks the first edition of a series of releases. On the first Monday of each month, a new song will be available through our Bandcamp page, as well as the usual online outlets including Spotify, iTunes and Amazon. We’ll also try our best to add as much to each release as possible, with b-sides, acoustic versions and videos.
Sorry we've been a bit quiet lately, but we'd like to let you know that our debut album, Star Map, is out now! You can get a special, hand finished deluxe CD version here:
And the standard edition here:
Golden Fable are Rebecca Palin, Tim McIver and Jack McCarthy, and together they create music described by The Line Of Best Fit as “nothing short of inspirational”.
Hailing from the foothills of mountainous north Wales, Golden Fable compose their music within its abundant, richly varied landscape. Pairing these organic influences with modern instrumentation, debut album ‘Star Map’, released in 2012, was constructed from electronic beats, synths and processed effects alongside guitars, pianos and strings, resulting in “an incredibly gorgeous dream pop collection” (In Your Speakers).
Twelve months of writing and evolving followed, and the band resurfaced from their creative retreat with second album, ‘Ancient Blue’. Recorded with David Wrench (Bat For Lashes, Caribou) and Jimmy Robertson (Anna Calvi) in Snowdonia, ‘Ancient Blue’ is impassioned, intense and bolder than its predecessor. It is both strident and intimate, reflecting the intrinsic connection between human forces and natural forces.
