When hot Paris-based trio, Fierce Flowers, issued their Mirador album in 2020, it stimulated a frenzy of media interest that resulted in a huge amount of exposure in the UK. Julia Zech’s vocals featured strongly and she had written a large number of the album’s killer tracks.
Differences led to a split, and she reverted to focussing all of her attention on the Cologne-based Stereo Naked, with whom she had performed with playing partner Pierce Black, for several years.
The latest album won a huge amount of exposure in the UK. BBC Radio 2 Folk Show presenter Mark Radcliffe told listeners: “I do like this music!” Reviewing the record for Americana UK, writer Tim Martin predicted: “This album will establish them as your new favourite band."
Rain Of Animals
World-roving troubadors, Rain Of Animals, a richly euphonious collaboration between Pepita Emmerichs (Oh Pep!) and Theodore Barnard (Wire & Wool) grew from their love of all things mandolin, fiddle, guitar, harmony vocals, bluegrass, old-time and swing.
The duo first met and formed after an impromptu jam session in a legendary Melbourne bar in 2018, and they have continued to perform, write and tour together ever since.
