Members of The National and Menomena have joined forces to form a new band - Pfarmers.
Made up of Danny Seim (Menomena, Lackthereof), Bryan Devendorf (The National), and Dave Nelson (David Byrne & St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens), the new group will release their debut album, ‘Gunnera’, on 12th May.
Explaining the album, Seim says: ”The record is about a dream I had where I’m reluctantly accepting a fear of drowning by focusing on being reincarnated as a giant Gunnera plant, which thrive on the banks of rivers (specifically the Jordan River i.e. the Biblical promised land) after I paint myself gold and sink to the bottom like the El Dorado of South American folklore.”
A first track from the album - ‘The Ol’ River Gang’ - can be streamed below:

Name a more iconic duo, we’ll wait.
Now you can cry watching Matt and co. from the comfort of your own home!
Whitney, Boy Azooga and Let’s Eat Grandma also impress.
Her swansong performance for the ‘High As Hope’ run is just as hypnotic and emotive as her first.
