DEBUT ALBUM _ HOME A SEA _ OUT NOW --
Effervescent, indietronic-artrock meets wonky pop created by enigmatic partners in life and art Featherwest. A poetic, off-centre take on the human condition straddling live band and electronic with vintage synths, samples and soaring male - female vocal interplay.
Borne of a serendipitous meeting between Iwona and Ryan during a 5am police raid clambering from the window of, then illegal, Soho club Helena Troys; Featherwest are married Glasgow duo and Iwona Glowinska and Ryan Denton (synths, vocals, guitars) joined by close friend Kev Dunne (session drums).
Naming themselves after a fictitious, unresolvable game played in the 90s absurd comedy show The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer the group have played alongside colourful, acts such as Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio, Mini Mansions, The Japanese House, BMX Bandits and stirred attention on KEXP and BBC Introducing live sessions.
Following a successful crowdfunder, pitched in bunny masks, to press their record to Vinyl Record and shifting a third of their physical stock already in pre-sale Featherwest put forward debut album Home At Sea in 2018 completed under the watchful eye of Chem 19 producer Paul Savage.
