Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Flecks. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the uniqueness of his style.
More than an album this is a deep journey into emotions. I don’t know why but from the very first notes I was moved while listening to these wonderful songs.
These ancestral melodies are capable of speaking to the most unknown and hidden parts of your unconscious.
Music that offers moments of tension, sweetness, astonishment but which has passion and romanticism as its leitmotif in my opinion.
It is as if Flecks with this album told us a story about the path of life. A fragile path that sometimes makes us stable and fall but that awards us with priceless scenarios and emotions.
This music is an immense gift from a sensitive person who has completely opened up to us through his music.
Flecks threw off the mask and it was Paul who made us dream the whole time.
A light tear ran down my cheek but immediately a smile of hope made it fall. Maybe this is life… the moment between joy and pain … or maybe it’s just everything.
Hibernate To Accumulate is Flecks’ Album Out Now!
Paul does various things: he’s editor of the Guardian’s Country Diary column (the oldest newspaper column in the world), a subeditor on the Guardian’s Opinion desk, writer of Great British Pub Dogs, a former comedy critic for the Guardian, Indy and Telegraph, and a panellist on the Edinburgh Comedy Award (formerly “the Perrier”). When he was 18/19 he was in a band with James Chapman, aka Maps, who as a direct result went on to be nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2007. The band was called The Renee Julienne Stunt Project, and there were no gigs.
