This is an archive of the band profile for Fossil Collective.
Fossil Collective are David Fendick and Jonny Hooker.
Fossil Collective, a two-piece from Leeds, consists of multi instrumentalists David Fendick and Jonny Hooker. Their first recordings saw them taking inspiration from classic albums by Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac and Simon and Garfunkel and suggested comparisons with more contemporary artists such as Fleet Foxes, Midlake and Bon Iver. But in truth their exquisitely structured songs and glorious, rich harmonies owe as much, if not more, to a solid English song tradition, and their material holds that distinct English quality that many North American artists hanker after.
To date the band has released a highly acclaimed EP, Honey Slides, which sold out in CD form in two days and attracted a wave of glowing reviews..
