Father John Misty has snake-hips of steel that have the ladies swooning when he swings! Have an epiphany, click play.
Real rock’n'roll is raw and unadulterated, it’s all-consuming, infectious and full-on. Slinky, scruffy and completely uninhibited, when Father John Misty performs on stage with tambourine in hand he goes hard. The gruff, rich baritones he conjures from the bottom of his soul bring together the ramshackle instrumentals he arranges around him, forging perfect synchronicity between his band and himself. Keeping the tempos of his tracks relaxed, FJM’s unkempt appearance reflects his anecdotal lyrics. Previously playing drums for Saxon Shore and Fleet Foxes, the artist formerly known as Josh Tilman has released eight albums throughout his solo career, with his most recent compendium, entitled Fear Fun, released via Sub Pop records this year. i-D online caught-up with the man of many talents to chat about his songwriting capacities and haphazard creative direction.
