Set for release on 25th Feb via Fierce Panda, ‘Thumbtacks & Glue‘ is Woodpigeon’s fifth full-length album to date and whilst it is his first proper release since 2010, the past few years have been anything but quiet for Mark Andrew Hamilton. There have been multiple EPs and singles, a move from Calgary, Alberta to Vienna, Austria, tours of Europe with Junip and Andrew Bird, and a tour of North America supporting Patrick Wolf, plus a slew of headlining and festival dates. Known for his stunning and heart-wrenching orchestral pop, ‘Thumbtacks & Glue’ shows off Hamilton at his most diverse. This is the sound of a songwriter just hitting his stride.
