Feather Beds is the musical moniker of Dublin artist, Michael Orange. Play Dead is the first single to be taken from the second album, which was recorded in Montreal and Dublin and is scheduled for release in 2017. Mixed by Stephen Shannon (Adrian Crowley, Strands), Play Dead follows on from last year's critically acclaimed debut album, The Skeletal System.
Using field recordings, samples and found sounds and a dark, melancholic undercurrent, whilst still retaining a twisted pop sensibility – Feather Beds creates music that occupies the space between fragile electronica and a shoegaze aesthetic of noise and texture. It’s music that takes influence from pop to drone to noise/art rock to folk and everything in between. Formerly a drummer with Dublin bands, The Star Department, Subplots and Autumn Owls, he has spent the past number of years writing and recording with these bands, releasing records and touring extensively in Europe and North America.
