“Walter” by Feather Beds
Feather Beds is the musical moniker of Dublin born/Montreal based multi instrumentalist, Michael Orange. He is joined live by Tim Charman and Mike Michalik. Using field recordings, samples and found sounds, combined with heavy, abrasive layering and a dark, melancholic undercurrent, whilst still retaining a twisted pop sensibility – Feather Beds creates music that occupies the space between fragile electronica and a shoegaze aesthetic of noise and texture.
It’s music that takes influence from pop to drone to noise/art rock to folk, and everything in between. Formerly a drummer with Dublin bands, The Star Department, Subplots and Autumn Owls, he has spent the past number of years writing and recording with these bands, releasing records and touring extensively in Europe and North America. Feather Beds is his first venture as a solo artist and February 2015 will see the release of his debut album, The Skeletal System, on Happenin Records.
