The National and Menomena members combine to form Pfarmers

The new band will release their debut album this May.

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:
