Fol Chen had an incredible 2009, with rave reviews of their debut album, Part One: John Shade, Your Fortune’s Made. They shot a video with the Laker girls. They covered Prince’s "The Beautiful Ones" for Spin’s Purplish Rain compilation and Pink Floyd’s "In The Flesh" for MOJO’s tribute to The Wall. They hit the airwaves with live performances on the BBC and KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic and were featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. They were remixed by many (including Liars) and did remixes of many others (including Junior Vasquez).
So, how do you top that for the new year and the new decade? Well, you start with a tour with the Liars, start work on a new LP, and in your free time work with Emmy award winning director Chris Wilcha to provide folks on a high concept music video shot in India to tide everyone over til the next record.
