Fyfe shares collaborative EP with Iskra Strings

Fyfe shares collaborative EP with Iskra Strings
Fyfe and Iskra Strings have teamed up together to launch their brand new collaborative EP: Fyfe & Iskra Strings EP1, out now! The EP features the new track Peaks which was recently selected to soundtrack the new Cartier campaign, with a short film (starring Jake Gyllenhaal) premiering last week.

Speaking about the collaboration Iskra Strings' James Underwood said,
Over the summer of 2017 I made a weekly trip to Fyfe’s studio to drink coffee, enjoy friendship and fire off as many musical ideas as time would allow. 
Fyfe added,
The whole project was recorded in one space - my production room - which adds an element of sonic and emotional consistency that I really enjoy hearing in records. It’s one of the most enjoyable projects I’ve worked on to date.
This intimacy and playfulness are evident on the first track from the EP, Hold Us Down: one the most exuberant and immediate songs Fyfe has ever lent his voice to. Right across its sometimes-instrumental 23 minutes this EP is brimming over with the sound of two friends excited by the endless possibilities of their electronic, classical and pop worlds colliding.

Fyfe affirms,
Having spent the last few years making records alone, working with James helped to open my eyes to the power of collaboration. Reacting in real-time to someone else’s approach to harmony, melody and structure meant there was a real momentum when developing ideas together and a definite release from creative self-consciousness.

Although their first full-length collaborative project, both Fyfe and Iskra Strings have form when it comes to bridging the perceived gaps between classical, pop and alternative music. Iskra Strings have forged a reputation for working with some of the most exciting musicians recording today, regardless of genre. A loose collective headed by James Underwood, Iskra have collaborated both live and in the studio with Vampire Weekend, The xx and Sufjan Stevens as well as performing with the finest musicians in the contemporary classical world including Olafur Arnalds, Johann Johannsson, Michael Price and Dustin O’Halloran. 

Paul Dixon, across his two acclaimed albums as Fyfe and his earlier incarnation as David’s Lyre, has never been afraid to bring classical influences into play alongside his contemporary pop sensibilities: a childhood training in violin, piano and voice add a unique twist to his thoroughly modern approach to songwriting and production.
