I am not quite sure how I feel about the band name Fossil Collective . Whenever I see that name, I think it's bands comprising of members from Animal Collective and Beach Fossils. However, this band is not that. Instead, Fossil Collective is a band from Leed's featuring David Fendick and Jonny Hooker. They write pleasant songs. The best way I can describe the song Let it Go is that it sounds like something Zach Braff would have listened to and then immediately write a scene for in that new movie of his. You know, the one [...]

They’re perfect listening for a lazy Sunday morning, a relaxed evening by the fire and could probably cure a hangover. It was no surprise then that a chilled ambience filled The Prince Albert in Brighton for Fossil Collective . People were even sitting down. You could tell it was going to be a very folky night. There was great support from Joe Banfi , a dead ringer for Ben Howard (also under Communion Records), and just as vocally beautiful. Banfi’s voice had an edgy, croaky quality, which perfectly complimented his intriguing folk-meets-grunge style. Particularly memorable was [...]

With all this dream pop floating around, I guess you know what we're trying to say, right? Damn straight - spring is in the air. Next: summer! Here's "The Magpie" from Fossil Collective 's upcoming debut album "Tell Where I Lie", available now on Dirty Hit.
David Fendrick and Jonny Hooker are founders of Fossil Collective , a rather dusty-sounding moniker for a band that is quickly and quietly emerging at the forefront of the burgeoning U.K. folk/rock movement. This is new acoustic songcraft reimagined for the indie world. As we noted in our DC RADAR feature , Fossil Collective's stunning debut Tell Where I Lie (April 8, Dirty Hit UK) takes understatement to a sublime new stratosphere, turning one gorgeously rendered line after another to create songs that sound simultaneously [...]
The first time I was introduced to the UK folk/rock duo Fossil Collective was back in 2011 when they released a wonderful track/video for " On and On ." Since then, they were working hard on their debut album, Tell Where I Lie , which will be available April 8th. These guys sort of remind me of Fleet Foxes , not that it is a bad thing or that they are a copycat as the pair make their own great music. Yet, the sound is also not revolutionary, but I don't think that is exactly what [...]

Fossil Collective 's approachability was a key carrier to their success in 2012. Their debut EP On and On , as well as its predecessors Let It Go and Free , progressed upon a relatable vibe which transcends that of your routine dream-folk outfits. This crowd-pleasing methodology, built around seductive harmonizing and convenient melodies that swoon all the same, is a blueprint for success that traces back to revolutionaries like The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac . It's a formula designed to reach a wide variety of listeners, eschewing progressive tendencies to create a [...]
The FOSSIL COLLECTIVE 's beauty gets lost on me as a bearded topless fella's tats are revealed in the opening scene of the Leeds-based multi-instrumentalists' new video WOLVES . Thankfully slash sadly he puts on some clothes (he'll get cold laying topless in the snow afterall) and the rest is a beautiful visual treat to accompany the lovely gem of an mp3.

Posted in Music Videos Play-This-List Fossil Collective are a multi-instrumentalist duo from Leeds, England. David Fendick and Jonny Hooker take their inspiration from Fleetwood Mac and Simon & Garfunkel, so you can imagine what they sound like before you hear them. Soft, but rich, harmonies that ease the mind - perfect for a Sunday Supplement slot I think. A debut [...]

Fossil Collective is the kind of band that wears its influences on its sleeves. The Leeds duo, comprised of multi-instrumentalists David Fendick and Jonny Hooker, may sound similar to established acts like Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses or Neil Young, but their style is well-honed enough to separate them from the imitators. "Wolves," which comes off their debut LP, Tell Where I Lie , is a fine example of their craft. It's a smooth, harmonious folk track driven by solid piano/guitar instrumentals and pristine vocal chorales. The music video for the track [...]
