The Raven’s Empire

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

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.
