The Farewell Drifters
With acoustic instrumentation and the anthemic thrust of their songwriting, The Farewell Drifters find themselves in the midst of an era-defining, youthful folk-rock boom. But the Drifters aren’t content simply to stomp, strum and sing with gusto. They bring a unique Brian Wilson-like sensibility to the 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.
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. Over the past two years, the band has been prominently featured by The Acousticana Journal 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. Tomorrow Forever will be released in early 2014 as they continue to tour across the world!
