When Brooklyn composer and score writer Ellis Ludwig-Leone, now known as San Fermin, graduated from the Yale College of Music, it took him six weeks to write and record an album. The album is (as Ludwig-Leone puts it) “a pastiche of post rock, chamber pop, and contemporary classical composition.” What resulted is an energetic and thoughtful amalgamation of top indie rock bands. Though a very creative and well-arranged album, it ends up sounding a lot like Dirty Projectors with some Lana Del Rey vibes thrown in. Either way, it’s a great listen. Check out the first single off the self-titled album (out September 17th) below.
