‘The Palfreyman Collective’ – Toby Merrit
The Palfreyman Collective – ‘The Palfreyman Collective’
London-based band, The Palfreyman Collective released the stunning self-titled album ‘The Palfreyman Collective’ in November 2022. It is an acoustic-rock release you do not want to miss this Winter.
‘To Die, To Be Really Dead’ opens the release and instantly draws the listener in. We adore the addictive vibe set to an industrial beat and stunning musicianship.
In addition, ‘In This Little Place’ is a stand-out song. From the opening hook to the charming, charismatic vocal performance, it is a song that is filled with wonderful hooks and memorable melodies.
Moreover, ‘Slow Burner’ is a brilliant song with soulful vocal performances, stoic backing instrumentation and an must-hear vibe. Finally, ‘Afraid of the Morning’ closes the release, and it will have the listener reaching for the repeat button.
Songwriter David Palfreyman heads the Palfreyman Collective. It also includes band members Martin Barker, Matt Hector- drums, Ben Miles, Dan Mckinna – bass, David Clayton – keys and Greg Hart and Rodger Hanna – guitars. In addition, vocalists include Paul Manzi, Jesse Smith, Damien Edwards, Allegra Shock and Sarah Jane Morris.
Clearly, the band members in The Palfreyman Collective are excellent musicians in their respective fields, but the magic happens when they play together.
David Palfreyman is a multitalented artist whose acting work includes productions for the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, the Canal Cafe Theatre in London, and the Horla Theatre Company.
Moreover, his TV credits include appearances in EastEnders and Peak Practice, voice-overs for the BBC’s Newsnight and Sky Sports’ Modern Pentathlon World Cup coverage, and roles in the films Oi Queer, Baseline and Brassed Off.
Body of Work
We are thrilled to have heard ‘The Palfreyman Collective’; it is a rich and diverse album that benefits from being listened to from beginning to end in one setting, and the individual tracks come together to form a much bigger body of work. So turn the lights down and the volume up! Enjoy!
