The video for Cornish indie-folk band, ENNOR‘s new single Farewell to Atlantis has just been released. Directed by John Freddy Jones, he captured their sun-drenched melodies, providing a taster of their EP, out later in the year.
The band spoke with The Fountain about what we can expect from that, why ENNOR as a band name and more about their gig at Tamesis Dock.
TF: A new video release, you must be excited?
Absolutely! We’re proud of the track and it was great to work with John Freddy Jones on the video, he’s a close friend of ours and is brilliant at what he does; we’re pretty thrilled with how it’s all turned out and are excited to finally be putting it out there.
TF: And I see you have an EP out later in the year, what can we expect from that?
We feel this one is best described as an EP of two halves, having been writing for a long time and are really excited to be putting new material out. You’ll have to wait a little longer to find out more on that one!
TF: And where did you draw the inspiration for your band name from?
There’s an old legend that the Isles of Scilly off the Cornish coast were once a single island, a sunken kingdom called Ennor, It’s kind of like our own Atlantis story, but it’s got a particular resonance with the folklore of Cornwall and the West.
TF: Are you going to be promoting this with a tour, are we likely to see you play live soon?
We’ve got our launch show at Tamesis Dock in London on the 25th April; it’s a boat-bar near Lambeth bridge and we’ve got our friends P.F. Phillip & The Nightriders and Prima Queen supporting which will be awesome – hopefully not too rowdy! We’ve got a lot of plans this summer heading back onto the road, which again we’ll be announcing very soon.
TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?
It’s difficult to name one specifically, which must be a good sign! Last summer we had some amazing shows with BBC Introducing at Sidmouth Fringe and Boardmasters, but certainly a couple of the shows from our tour of the Isles of Scilly stick out as very fond memories.
