April 3, 2013 – New York, NY – After a massively successful SXSW where they opened for their heroes Depeche Mode, Austin, TX four-piece Feathers will serve as support to Little Boots on their upcoming US tour.  (Dates listed below)  The band will also perform at Filter Magazine’s Pre-Coachella party on April 18th.

Feathers debut album If All Now Here will now arrive in stores on May 28th.

The group is the work of singer-songwriter Anastasia Dimou (Cruel Black Dove).  The band lineup features bassist Courtney Voss (Missions), keyboardist Kathleen Carmichael and drummer Jon Minor, as well as alternating members Destiny Montague (Shock Cinema/Midnight Masses) and Alex Gehring (Ringo Deathstarr).  Dimou has been described as having a bold live persona, bringing a sense of mystery and a raw voice to a backdrop of pop melodies and beats, making the unique sound of Feathers.

FADER recently debuted a video for the second track from the forthcoming album: “Soft.”  You can watch the video for that track here: http://tinyurl.com/bngtj4h

What people are saying about Feathers:

“Charming all who stumbled across them, their industrial-tinged synth sound might go directly against music’s current psychedelic love-in but that just makes them all the more crisp and refreshing.” – NME

“If All Now Here” a shimmering tribute to night-staking heroes like the Cure and Depeche Mode.” – – Entertainment Weekly

“Pulsing synths and siren-song harmonies” – BrooklynVegan.com

“Feathers channeled the “Personal Jesus” electro-blues stomp of Depeche Mode…” – Chicago Tribune

“But in a night dedicated to discovery, at least for this reporter, one of the most accessible was Austin-based Feathers.  Singer Anastasia Dimou always seemed to be attempting to conjure a mood, waving the audience to her and then pushing them away as if the stage was something she was floating on.” – Los Angeles Times

“Land of the Innocent, the debut single, neatly expresses Feathers’ desire to combine a dystopian future-world aesthetic with a pop sensibility and rhythms tough enough to pass muster in the realm of the industrial… makes you wonder why there hasn’t been such an all-female group before.” – The Guardian

“Led by NYC transplant Anastasia Dimou, Feathers’ goth-hued electro thrives in the era of New Order and Depeche Mode, brought to life by a cast of heavy hitters, including a mix by Steven DePalo, who’s worked with fellow dark wave synths Cold Cave.” – Austin Chronicle

“Feathers, whose synth-packed debut track ‘Land Of The Innocent’ is TOTAL heaven.” –  In Style Magazine
