We are delighted to welcome  My Name Is Ian  back onto our release schedule after an uncharacteristically long development period for their latest album,  Fantastic Company , out via  Bubblewrap Collective  on  4 th June 2021 .

The band’s standard ‘prolific-and-terrific’ approach, culminating in no less than 18 releases since 2010, has been put to one side, with their latest being written and recorded over two years, with time spent in four different locales (Cardiff’s  Rat Trap  and  King’s Road Studios , the pop-up  Snowbird Studios in Riofreddo, Italy and  Axe and Trap Studio in Wells). The resultant LP takes a substantive shift from the garage-pop of previous records and leaps double-footed into a charmingly wonky, indie-dance parallel universe where almost anything seems possible.

Placing centrally the multi-layered, pre-programmed beats of in-house production guru, Joseph Coleby, live instrumentation including electric guitar, four different keyboards and synths, smooth funk-soul bass and hand percussion are also liberally sprinkled throughout.

Flanking Reginald Foxwell’s ever-incisive lead vocals are over 20 other singers including members of  The Burning Hell, Quiet Marauder, HMS Morris  and more. The aggregated effect of this production methodology, musicianship, and spirit of sonic adventurism is a warming, texturally deep and irresistibly catchy set of tracks straddling pop, hip-hop and experimental soundscapes.

The next single to be released from  Fantastic Company  will be  Where is The Time? Featuring  HMS Morris  on  16 th April 2021 . The album will be available on limited edition heavyweight black vinyl and across all the usual digital streaming and retail platforms.
