MUSIC NEWS: FES Announce Debut Album & Release Video For New Single ‘Clarinet’
FES have signed to Brighton Independent label Small Pond Records and will release their debut album With Regards From Home on 29th April 2022.
Discussing the forthcoming album, guitarist Pollyanna Holland-Wing says: “Originally the album started off as an EP to be released in 2020/21. But as COVID hit we were forced to put that on hold. With so much time on our hands and gigging life on pause we decided to go BIG for our next release. We wrote new songs and tweaked the ones we had. The main themes of the album consist of dealing with death for the first time, self-reflection and mental health.”
Alongside the album and signing announcement they have shared the video for new single Clarinet. “’Clarinet’ is all about the loss of your inner child, and the simplicity of childhood. It’s about the choices made and begs the question, ‘if things were different, would it be better?’. The question I asked myself whilst writing this song was, ‘what would my younger self think of present-me?’,” adds Pollyanna Holland-Wing.
