The Farewell Drifters bring a unique Brian Wilson-like sensibility to the folk-rock movement, with intricately arranged harmonies and atmospheric, string-swathed studio shading that is newly showcased on the quartet’s first album for their new label Compass Records titled Tomorrow Forever, out today.
The Farewell Drifters have begun an extensive U.S. tour, which includes SXSW and Folk Alliance International Conference Appearances. Collaborating with roots pop producer Neilson Hubbard (Matthew Perryman Jones, the Apache Relay) helped solidify the band’s voice, elevating their crystalline harmonies and acoustic foundation with gutsy electric guitar and orchestral-style drums to create a sound that’s earthy, richly layered, and powerful. The stomping title track,“Modern Age” and the catchy “Bring ‘em Back Around” all support the album’s over-arching theme—a hopeful look at the future and the importance of always seeking the silver lining.
Over the past two years, the band has been prominently featured by American Songwriter and Paste Magazine as well as landing on several indie tastemaker lists such as Pop Matters Top New & Emerging Acts and Under The Radar’s Top 11 Albums.
