Admiral Fallow

Tender, melodic, and ultimately hopeful, Admiral Fallow’s orchestral, indie pop has earned them spots on the bills for various big-name festivals over the years, including Great Escape, Glastonbury, and SXSW. Formed in 2007 by frontman Louis Abbott, the Scottish five-piece released their third album Tiny Rewards in 2015 plus a special, limited-edition double vinyl. Abbott can be spotted on Sundays at Bloc+ in Glasgow, where he holds a weekly open mic.
