Ancient Blue is not only one of the albums of the year
but an album of the ages.”  Echoes and Dust

Both enchanting and haunting, there is something almost otherworldly about the sounds they produce.” – Clash

Beautiful” – Guy Garvey

“Nothing short of tremendous. All life is here, all soul and all heart” – Echoes and Dust

Golden Fable are Rebecca Palin, Tim McIver and Jack McCarthy, and together they create music described by The Line Of Best Fit as “nothing short of inspirational”.  Hailing from the foothills of mountainous north Wales, Golden Fable compose their music within its abundant, richly varied landscape.  Pairing these organic influences with modern instrumentation, debut album, Star Map released in 2012 was constructed from electronic beats, synths and processed effects alongside guitars, pianos and strings.

Twelve months of writing and evolving followed, and the band resurfaced from their creative retreat with second album, Ancient Blue.  Recorded with David Wrench (Bat For Lashes, Caribou) and Jimmy Robertson (Anna Calvi) in Snowdonia,  Ancient Blue is impassioned, intense and bolder than its predecessor. It is both strident and intimate, reflecting the intrinsic connection between human forces and natural forces.

Throughout Ancient Blue, Golden Fable move effortlessly between the heart-wrenching stillness of Low or Dead Can Dance, and the textured, melodic electronica of The Album Leaf or M83.  ‘Breathe In’ utilises synths, electronic drums and a much fuller guitar sound to create a buoyant, boisterous mood.

Golden Fable’s deliciously haunting sound has received extensive radio play and  wowed crowds at End of the Road, Bestival, Green Man and SWN festivals.  The band have toured with Field Music, Cherry Ghost and Wave Machines.
