Bristol-based musician and songwriter Martin Callingham has announced the release of a new album. Assassins, a collaboration with visual artist Lyndsie Barnard, will be released as a beautiful boxed set of postcards and a limited run of vinyl in May 2018, the full album is due for release on Oh Schmo! in October 2018.
Ahead of the release, Martin has previewed the track A Toe on the Water, watch the accompanying video below, it is also our Song of the Day. The video was filmed as a single shot from the back of Martin’s sister’s car near Hay Bluff on the Welsh borders, close to Martin’s childhood home. He offers no explanation for the costume.
His debut album Tonight, We All Swim Free was released in 2015 on Folkwit Records. It was a Featured Album of the Month on Folk Radio.
Tonight, We All Swim Free is an almost perfectly formed example of the album as a complete artistic statement…Beautifully recorded and lovingly created, it’s exactly what an album should be. Read the full review here.
Assasins was mixed by Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, PJ Harvey, M.Ward, Gruff Rhys). Expect deeply affecting live shows to accompany a beautifully crafted album.
