The Fernweh was created by three musicians, Jamie Backhouse, Ned Crowther & Austin Murphy, who wanted to make a record that embodied their love of British folk & psychedelia. Three years in the making, their eponymous debut album brings together a collection of songs that examine childhood nostalgia, memory and loss through a distinctly British lens - a creative strand that runs through many of the group’s influences: Anne Briggs, The Zombies, Frederick Delius, Basil Kirchin, Fairport Convention & Joy Division (See Junk - One Hundred Fixes For The Fernweh). Performed, recorded & produced by the band, we find guest appearances from friends Rozi Plain (This Is The Kit), Alessi's Ark, Low Chimes, Orchestre du Montplaisant & Mirabelle Gilis (Miossec).   The Fernweh was released 30/11/18 on Skeleton Key Records.  BBC 6 Music presenters Cerys Matthews, Guy Garvey, Radcliffe & Maconie, Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe have all heavily supported the album on radio. Their much awaited follow-up is expected in 2021. Stay tuned!
