Featherwest is Eccentric, IndieTronica meets Wonky Pop. “Loving anything weird, alternative to mainstream, we make our very own slightly odd and off centre sounds combined with lyrics that romanticise on less comfortable areas of the human condition. All in all we kinda wish we lived in Twin Peaks.”
Debut year saw a host of achievments and airplay for Featherwest including playing with LA's Mini Mansions (Queens of the Stone Age- Micheal Shuman featuring Alex Turner fo Arctic Monkeys). Featherwest headlined King Tuts Wah Wah Hut with Baltimore's Sun Club. In May their headline at Hidden Door festival saw the launch of single - A Baby Not Yet on a brand new beer produced by Edinurgh events co. Deacagram. Mid September the trio entered Chem19 studios with Mogwai producer Paul Savage to work on a winter release and album sessions for a 2017 launch thus are looking for appropriate assistance. Along with UK bookings aligning Featherwest will be heading to eastern Europe to promote their sounds in collaboration with American run indie label Loose Wire Records. Featherwest kicked off 2016 with Celtic Connections Dates alongside Rock Action record's De Rosa and NYC's Frog. Followed by opening for Vampire Weekend's - Chris Baio on his Album Tour.
