Richly orchestral pop definitive of an artist both prolific and purposeful
Syncing the sweeping, string-laden single to a filmic official video starring Salomon, the new visuals immerse the viewer in the narrative of a protagonist juxtaposing longings for past adventures, with optimistic thoughts of beginning new ones.
Reflecting on the origins of “Interstate 10”, a track she wrote about her earliest experiences of touring America as a teenager, Fe says:
Interstate 10” connects far-flung events that occurred during my travels around the US, including having to escape from a violent manager who gambled all the money away in Vegas. The song was written with my old friend, producer Ru Cook, and it was originally envisioned as a country song.
Directed by producer and contemporary classical composer, Johnny Parry, the video for “Interstate 10” was filmed in Margate, on the Kent coastline. The video’s Director, Parry, was notably a key collaborator in the making of Fe’s long-awaited new album ‘Living Rooms’, which is out this week via Drink Me Recordings.
11 tracks of intricately autobiographical, richly orchestral pop definitive of an artist in both prolific and purposeful form, ‘Living Rooms’ has been receiving early praise from the likes of The List Magazine who praised Salomon as “channelling Bjork meets Goldfrapp (with a hint of Stevie Nicks)”, whereas The Crack Magazine championed the record as “art-pop of the highest order”.
Fe Salomon is a singer-songwriter, performer and producer, currently based in the East Midlands. Finding a kindred creative spirit in producer and contemporary classical composer Johnny Parry, together the pair have been working on her upcoming debut ‘Living Rooms’. A record which will tell stories of multiple lives lived and lost in the city, of friendships that meant everything and the characters you’ll never meet again, of transience and loneliness, and of getting by and moving on; it promises to be every bit as enrapturing and enigmatic as the artist at its core.
Making her mark with a full-blooded debut of rich, playful, experimental pop with distinct, exuberant and fulfilling depths, ‘Living Rooms’ the remarkable debut album by Fe Salomon is out now.
