An Early Bird - Fishes in the Ocean (single)

Self-taught multi-instrumentalist An Early Bird releases his indie folk single „Fishes in the Ocean“, a song of crystal clear acoustic crispness, with expressive lyrics and a falsetto voice gliding effortlessly over cinematic and gentle anthems.Growing up in Naples, South of Italy, Stefano De Stefano (this is the name behind the project) cut his teeth on the Italian music circuit with a local band before going solo: the debut album „Of Ghosts & Marvels“ was released in October 2018 followed by the EP „In Depths“ in September 2019. An Early Bird has been touring extensively across Europe sharing stages alongside artists like Joshua Radin, Jake Bugg, S. Carey, Stu Larsen, Grant-Lee Phillips and Dan Owen.

The album „Echoes Of Unspoken Words“ (2020), featuring a bunch of songs of which some have been included in editorial Spotify playlists, continues a path of exploring that has progressively moved the songwriter from the early folk sounds to a richer and multi-layered sonic dimension. With the pandemic making touring impossible, this album has had a short life, so the idea to record a new one has come suddenly but with urgency.

This is what An Early Bird says about his new single „With my song ‚Fishes In The Ocean‘ I wanted to picture that feeling of being tired and trapped in the net of everyday life, with rules and roles that we all know. I think that out there we feel like we’re alone in a sea of opportunities. I think we just haveone choice: catch them or being captured.“

Piano and guitar-based track lets the vocal shine and the message come across. An atmospheric composition makes you escape from the routine, at least for a while, get lost in the soundscapes An Early Bird is creating. The voice of the singer surprises you at first but in a pleasant way as it fits the arrangement of the song perfectly. Who doesn't want to run away and be somebody else for a while? There's something about the melody that makes the hair on the back of your next stand up.
