Scottish rising stars Admiral Fallow's music has been described as "orchestral folk pop". The band has an unusual instrumental make up with clarinet, flute and occasional accordion augmenting the traditional indie set up of guitars, keyboards, bass and drums. They also have 2 great vocalists in Louis Abbott and Sarah Hayes who sing songs of youth, teenage angst, boisterous nights out and even gun crime in America.
At the end of 2012 they headlined a stage a Edinburgh's Hogmanay street party, selling out Glasgow Barrowland in a memorable "homecoming" gig and being presented with Creative Scotland's "Music Award 2012".
On 24th May at Perth Concert Hall they wll be supported by The Hazey Janes. Having recorded LPs in Spain and America the band has also headlined throughout the UK, supporting the likes of Elbow, Idlewild and Snow Patrol before touring across Europe supporting Grammy award-winning American band Wilco.
