Biography

The first thing you realise when listening to Fossil Collective is that this is a band that do things differently. Beautiful melodic music, with rich glorious harmonies and meticulous attention to detail, it is as much an aural statement as it is a pleasure to listen to. Layer upon layer of harmony mixed with delicate uplifting sounds may well remind you of other artists, be it Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkel or Midlake but this music is no mere imitation. Whilst Fossil Collective’s songs tip their cap to these classic musicians, scratch the surface and you discover something more contemporary, yet equally as rewarding.

It seems impossible that something so sonically complete could appear as if from nowhere, but Fossil Collective, the Yorkshire two-piece have been perfecting their craft and working towards this moment for years. Consisting of multi-instrumentalists David Fendick and Jonny Hooker, both were local musicians from the Leeds music scene, whose paths had crossed at various points in different bands. ‘What separated Jonny from the other people I’d met was his total commitment to music’ begins Dave. ‘Whereas other people we were around were in bands for somewhat clichéd reasons, our focus was the music and the songs and for that reason we gravitated towards each other’. After a successful album with Leeds band Vib Gyor, the duo decided to strip everything back and start again.

Jonny reminisces, “we felt we had to fold our cards and be honest to ourselves. We were listening to the kind of music we grew up with.
