Crow's Feet just released "Surge Swell" via Old Mill Recordings.
The instrumental track is a superb mix of cinematic post-rock, evoking comparisons with the best of Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Crow’s Feet aka Lewis Tollan is joined on Surge Swell by musician friends Michael Davitt and Kyalo Searle-Mbullu who also co-wrote the song alongside Lewis. The first half introduces us to the song with a delicate piano progression which plays a call and response with single notes echoing out on a guitar, before a surge of energy builds us to the drop of the song where drums crash in with a cacophony of ambient noise. The song is the follow up to the first single Alarm Clock Bones and while it makes good on Lewis Tollan’s promise that no two songs will sound the same it retains the same wintery overtones that tie together Crow’s Feet’s sound.
