Individually Brighton-based musicians Glenn Fallows and Mark Treffel have notched up their fair share of recording accolades; Glenn through his work as part of The Impellers and Andres y Xavi and Mark as a member of Blue States and The Soul Steppers. It’s no wonder then that when they join forces the results truly speak to the pair’s years of experience.
Dreamed up during the summer of 2020, their debut collaboration The Globeflower Masters Vol. 1 – which comes via Brighton mainstay Mr Bongo – draws from their shared love of classic soundtrack material and library music, echoing the work of 60s and 70s cinematic composers like Morricone, Gainsbourg and Umiliani.
With Glenn on composition and arrangement duties, as well as supplying the bass, guitars and drums, and Mark employing his arsenal of vintage synths and other FX, the 8-track album is an emotive, deep listening experience that feels both fresh and timeless.
The Globeflower Master Volume 1 will be released on Mr Bongo on 10th September.
