Strawman & the Jackdaw's debut EP is a bold opening statement from the alternative band. 'F∇X' is highly representative of their eclectic nature since their formation in 2017, with 'Field of Wonders' marked as a stand-out track.
Strawman & the Jackdaws are expected to release their highly-anticipated debut EP, F∇X, on January 22nd.
To keep the excitement building, the outfit have shared their new track, 'Field of Wonders'.
The Dublin-based musical project consists of singer-songwriter Riccardo Ranzani, drummer Michael Reolon, guitarist Jacopo Stofler and keyboardist and saxophonist Rory Fleming.
This eclecticism is always harmonised by joyful and playful tones, even though accompanied by profound metaphors and imaginaries.
"The EP explores the meanings of the concept and the experience of traveling, driven from the belief that no matter the effort it takes, there will always be something to rely on and have faith in - a symbolic light emerging from shadows," a press release on the EP reads.
Recorded at Flaked Studio with Adam Redmond and at Terzo Mondo Studio with Giampaolo Rossi and mastered by Robin Schmidt, the work ranges between folk lines, indie-pop melodies and distorted riffs.
The band’s strength resides heavily in their Live shows and in their ability to entertain the crowd. After performing on Irish, English and Italian stages, Strawman & the Jackdaws are already booked for shows and festivals around Europe and Russia in 2021, post-pandemic.
