Acadian Embassy introduces Fossil Cliffs

FossilCliffs-AlbumArtAcadian Embassy introduces Fossil Cliffs, the new solo project from Mike D’Eon (Kuato, The Establishment). Recorded in its entirety in the basement of the Embassy – the house from which the label draws its name – the debut EP is an inspired collection of tracks that draws influence from decades of unsung Halifax underground champions. From the jittery start/stops of opener “Summer Sun, to the pop-rock stoner sludge of “In My Eyes, and the jangly washed out guitars of “Cold, the five-track album in an eclectic opening statement tinged with reverb and earnesty.

The album is slated for official release on Tuesday, October 7. The Fossil Cliffs EP release show happens Thursday, October 2 at Gus’ Pub with Crossed Wires.

A video for the album’s single “Wake Me Up, directed and shot by Adam MacPherson, was unveiled today. Watch it below or in our videos section.
