Introducing: Brigg Fair

Brigg Fair was put together by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Geoff Ereth, who took the name from the title of an Old English choral folk song about getting up early, eternal love, and green leaves.

Their debut full-length album, Kill Yourself For Change was recorded in New York under the stewardship of Brit, Iestyn Polson, whose previous production credits include Hard-Fi, David Bowie, and David Gray. Word has it that Ereth met Polson by chance at a Polish doughnut bakery in Brooklyn, which subsequently led to an agreement to make the album together. The majority of which was recorded totally live with the band, inspired by Talk Talk’s Spirit of Eden with Ereth playing a mulitidue of extra supporting instruments himself.

The album also features composers, Brian Senti and Trevor Gureckis, who collaborated on some of the arrangements for select tracks like “Lydia,” and the album’s title track, “Kill Yourself For Change.” The resulting effort is an orchestral and swooshing pop album that is reminiscent of both Keane and Coldplay.
