about

THUNDERCLAP is excited to announce the release of "Banks of Yarrow," the first installment in his 'Child Ballads' series. In this first single THUNDERCLAP reimagines the centuries-old tale of a young boy's abduction by a fair maiden, setting the story to a haunting, glitchy-electronic soundscape. Expect more singles to arrive in the coming weeks.

THUNDERCLAP is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist and producer Nick Kinsey, a founding member of Elvis Perkins in Dearland and Diamond Doves. Kinsey has recorded and/or performed with Bon Iver, My Morning Jacket, A.A. Bondy, A.C. Newman, and The Felice Brothers, among others.

For the 'Child Ballads' series, Kinsey is cribbing stories and collaging lyrics from a collection of 305 English and Scottish ballads compiled by 19th century folklorist Francis James Child, and setting them in new and unlikely compositional and production contexts.
