vinyl'The Cormorant 1' ushers in a new era for San Fermin, who envision the eight track collection as the first of two eventual full-length releases encompassing the full scope of the new project. It sets the tone for San Fermin's newest chapter, which largely takes place in the ordinary yet enchanted spaces of childhood, centring on the tension between growing up and longing for innocence. Paired with a storybook grandeur that entwines the real and the mythic, 'The Cormorant 1' invites listeners on a trip of wilful delusion, described by bandleader Ellis Ludwig-Leone as, 'creating fictions from your life as a way to deal with a more complicated reality'. One of the full-length's most thrillingly urgent tracks, 'The Hunger' illuminates the inner dialogue fundamental to dating in the modern age, moving from lonesomeness to angst to glorious self-lionisation with pure conviction. San Fermin is the project of Brooklyn-based composer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ellis Ludwig-Leone, who pairs lushly avant-garde arrangements with pop-minded melodies that are brought to life by his bandmates. Formed in 2012 (shortly after Ludwig-Leone completed a job assisting composer Nico Muhly) San Fermin made their debut with a self-titled 2013 release hailed by NPR as 'one of the year's most ambitious, evocative, and moving records'. The band's sophomore effort 'Jackrabbit' arrived in 2015, debuting at #8 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. With their third studio album 'Belong' released in April 2017, San Fermin has sold out shows worldwide, appeared at major festivals like Lollapalooza, and opened for the likes of St. Vincent, The National, Arctic Monkeys' and alt-J.
