Faction North, the production company that brought you From Scotland With Love – The Film, has again joined up with another brilliant musician, Emma Pollock, in a bold and dynamic audiovisual collaboration for ‘Parks and Recreation’ directed by Virginia Heath.
Emma Pollock’s long-awaited new album ‘In Search of Harperfield’, explores themes of family, place and time, then the urgent call and response of ‘Parks and Recreation’ finds us in the company of a younger Pollock: engaged in a fight or flight scenario with local bams, and delivering us a gilt-edged slab of alternative pop in the process.
Praise for ‘In Search of Harperfield’:
“The Dusty Springfield of cerebral indie pop. In a field of her own” Uncut Magazine [8/10]
“Beautifully crafted…an excellent record” MOJO [4/5]
“Sumptuous songs…bewitching…breathtaking” The Sunday Times
“One of our most vital, poetic and singular voices – a career high” The Herald – Scotland
From her earlier career with The Delgados through her excellent brace of solo long players, Emma’s ability to craft leftfield earworms has never been in doubt; with this new single, she’s broken her half-decade’s silence with the barreling rhythms of her former band and the urgent guitars of alt-pop heroes Tanya Donnelly and Kristin Hersh.
