Biography

Glasgow, United Kingdom (2007 – present)

Admiral Fallow is a Scottish folk/pop group based in Glasgow. Formerly known as Brother Louis Collective, the band was formed in 2007 and around the singer/songwriter Louis Abbott. Citing influences including Tom Waits, Elbow, Low, Midlake, King Creosote, and Springsteen, Admiral Fallow adds clarinet, flute, double bass and four jaw-dropping voices to the usual indie line-up to smash through their joyous, heart-filled, orchestral-tinged and beautifully well crafted songs. Abbott is proud to be Scottish and his accent is 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 (‘Four Bulbs’), through stomping Wilco-esque tunes to riotous cacophonies of white noise; their songs about alienation within relationships and youth itself are sung and screamed with utter abandon while the band work themselves into a furious frenzy…
“A thrilling, cathartic experience” Sub City Radio.

Fyfe Dangerfield of the Guillemots has supported and lauded this exceptional band since their formation, personally asking for them to open for the Guillemots in Glasgow and Edinburgh on their 2007 Scottish tours - and it’s easy to see why.

With the King Tut’s “Your Sound” artist of the month award, a stonking four track demo, a Connect festival appearance and an acclaimed December “Live at the Mill” headline slot at Oran Mor in Glasgow and The Caves in Edinburgh under their belts, 2008 was a year of quiet, confident progression for the band, whose original 5 piece line up has now been augmented by Tom Stearn on guitar and vocals.
