A regular performer at FdM gigs, Mark's superb 'Dark Weave' LP was a Friends of the Fish release - this is his follow-up...

Mark McDowell’s 6th studio album is a full band production – recorded as Mark McDowell and friends – that builds on 2017’s acclaimed 'Dark Weave'.

'Breakthrough' balances themes of uncertainty and euphoria – from life in dystopian living spaces to escape into the haunting beauty of the fields and woods. A celebratory summer festival, the lurking menace of city violence, a hallucinatory road trip and fears of impending cold war combine in a panorama of 21st Century hopes and fears.

As with 'Dark Weave', the album features the unique instrumentation of the ‘Friends’ – from bouzouki to minilogue synthesizer – all of whom contribute to the sound of a band that understands its roots but is always moving forward.

The LP is being sold direct by Mark - NOT by Fruits de Mer - you can order it right now CLICK HERE
