Thanks to everyone who has sent love & positivity towards the album.
“International Dreams” is almost spiritual in its delivery, with drawn out melodies and deep choral harmonies rubbing against bucolic electronics.“ - M Magazine
"With its arcane oddness and warped, subterranean beats, the music of Farm Hand seems very much at ease alone in the dark.” - Gold Flake Paint
“It’s good for you” - 4/5 Buzz Magazine
“super-creative” 8/10 God Is In The TV
“International Dreams feels like an important album” 8/10 Louder Than War
"Music with reverent, almost religious overtones" - WIRE Magazine
Noctule - A special commission from Peak for the Green Man Festival 2016
Farm Hand collaborated with artist Stefhan Caddick who works in video, installation and performance. The pair created a new, site-specific live performance called Noctule, taking place underground in Eglwys Faen, a cave on the Llangattock Escarpment. The piece responded to the unique acoustics, history and habitat of the cave system.
