Bio

Feathers, Wood 'N' String is an alternative rock duo made up of Adelaide born husband and wife Lloyd and Sarah Fletcher, playing the music of a full rock band. We started making music together when we had to move over to the UK for Lloyd's work and were stuck without our family, friends or hobbies in a tiny Southampton flat. With each other and a guitar, we've been writing rock ever since, and we record it all out of that same flat with Lloyd acting as our mixing engineer in true DIY style.

Expect driving heavy rock with soaring melodic riffs and meaningful lyrics. Our latest EP 'Reasons to Exist' can be found on all major platforms, and we hope you'll leave us a review here for title tracks A Rose for Nothing and Lifeline. Influenced by the likes of Birds of Tokyo, Dead Letter Circus, Nothing But Thieves, and 10 Years, Lloyd and Sarah Fletcher are two nerds originally from Adelaide, South Australia, but are currently living in Southampton in the UK for Lloyd's work. We're keen to get back to our homeland asap but you know, day jobs are necessary. You might hear the influence of our journey to the other side of the world in our lyrics. Sometimes you might also hear nerdy influences in our songs - we own it, and hope you will enjoy it.

Well, we might not all set sail and leave a life behind, but we sure all know the feeling at times of being forgotten, or being 'not enough.' Love the way this music ebbs and flows, the vocals sliding up and down as though on unpredictable seas, and the deep male backing vocal sit like an undertow in sections of the chorus.

Feathers, Wood 'N' String have really stepped it up even more this time with their lyrics, sound and mixing. It all packs a punch!

I really enjoy the changes of colour in this song, both in instrumentation and vocals. The dark and light, the drive and the drift really work for me. The heights and depths of the vocals are characteristic and in this song a lovely metaphorical reference to alternating doubt and gratitude.

A lovely and unusual love song, sweet in sentiment, strong in statement.
