Make sure you ‘Set Aside Some Time’ to listen to dream-folk band Constant Follower’s latest single.
Warm, woozy and heart-wrenchingly beautiful, Constant Follower’s forthcoming single ‘Set Aside Some Time’ is a humble nod to the inevitable passing of time. Drenched in nostalgia and memory, ‘Set Aside Some Time’ is the debut single from the forthcoming album ‘neither is, nor ever was’ which is due for release later this year. It’s effective simplicity gives way to an all-encompassing landscape of reflection and memories of childhood, themes that are explored in the video. Directed by Martin J Pickering, known for his work with Dua Lipa, Paloma Faith and Lethal Bizzle, the video is an immersive and enchanting dreamscape.
Ever since the Scottish “soaring-ambient-dreampop-experimental-folk” band began releasing music more than three years ago, Constant Follower’s emotionally honest and pain-stricken, yet warm, lyrics have become one of the project’s most endearing and beloved qualities. The current band consists of McAll, guitarist Andrew Pankhurst, Amy Campbell on backing vocals and synth, McAll’s partner Kathleen Stosch on backing vocals, synth and bass.
Mixing ideas of serenity with unpredictability to match the Hebridean wildness, Constant Follower continues to make music that talks straight to the soul. Described by Folk Radio as “instantly compelling, memorable and moving,” Constant Follower have already been championed by the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Gideon Coe and BBC Scotland’s Vic Galloway.
