San Fermin: Sonsick
After graduating from Yale, Ellis Ludwig-Leone did the next sensible thing, he moved home to Alberta and recorded a 17-track masterpiece. Ellis spend two months contemplating the meaning of life and the elusive term, future; San Fermin was the result.
After working on the project alone, he recruited Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe (Lucius) and long-time friend Allen Tate. Laessig and Wolfe's vocals provide a harmonizing sound similar to that of The Dirty Projectors. The rest of the album was created with the help of instrumentalists such as Bon Iver, yMusic and Asphalt Orchestra.
San Fermin relocated to Brooklyn and since have been receiving a lot of attention in anticipation for their Sept 17 [self-titled] release (via Downtown Records).
San Fermin just released their official video for "Sonsick." The video shows a young girl in a forest [Where The Wild Things Are-esque] who seemingly has a birthday party...although there is a devastating twist to the story...the party is for none other than a gluttonous pug.
