Five years & five records on from 2017’s EP1, A Blaze Of Feather return to celebrate the award winning Cornish language film ‘Hunros Jorna’, with a string of intimate headline UK performances.
‘A Blaze Of Feather’ continue to craft cinematic alt-folk reverie at the end of land. Sparked out from the supernatural heart of West Cornwall, songwriter Mickey Smiths music carries the heavy weather & raw stone influence of his homeland. A renowned artist, with 2010’s ‘Darkside Of The Lens’ described as one of the most influential surf films of all time; Smith’s elemental sonics first appeared as ‘A Blaze Of Feather’ in 2017, releasing EP1 & a self titled follow up on Ben Howard’s own ‘Hell Up Records’. He is supported on record by a skilled cast, thick as thieves after over a decade recording & touring the world together; including Ben Howard, Nat Wason, India Bourne, Richie Thomas, and Kyle Keegan.
In May 2022 A Blaze Of Feather released the soundtrack for ‘Hunros Jorna’, the multi-award winning Cornish language film written by Smith in collaboration with the creativity of gifted cinematographer Allan Wilson and the mercurial Gwenno Saunders. Smiths songs chronicle personal and social struggle amongst an ethereal Celtic world of wild sea and dreamscapes.
