The Water Between Us

March 19th, 2014

Oddfellow’s are proud to be releasing their 4th studio album, The Water Between Us, this May, through the French Kickstarter style label, Microcultures, and we’re hoping you might be kind enough to support its release.

We’re looking to raise 3,000 Euros through pre-orders and have lots of goodies on offer, from unreleased material and artwork to having Oddfellow’s record a cover version of your favourite song (provided you don’t ask for Side One of Tubular Bells).

The link below has all the information you need to know, including how to order. (Please click on the image of the Vimeo insert to get it working.)

The Raven’s Empire

January 5th, 2012


‘A haunting and melodically beautiful album, populated by ghosts and aliens.’
SUNDAY TIMES

Oddfellow’s third album is out this month, together with three new videos and a launch party at Brighton’s Hanbury Ballroom on the 23rd February.

With a great team behind it, the Raven’s Empire veers from heavily orchestrated epic songs to brooding piano tracks, all centred around the themes of haunting and death. Produced by Andrew Phillips (Grasscut) and stunning artwork by Stewart Armstrong (Lady GaGa, Kaiser Chiefs) this is Oddfellow’s first full album for three years.

‘Full of restrained anthems that mix the sensitivity of Sufjan Stevens with the big-hearted warmth and soft harmonies of Elbow’ UNCUT

With its criss-crossing themes, multiple narrators and geographical specifics, the record is kin to the interlinked, time-spanning tales of Alan Moore’s eerie Northamptonshire novel Voice of the Fire – praise not given lightly. Beautifully crafted.
