‘Threnody For February Swallows’ is the second single from the forthcoming Adam Stafford album ‘Trophic Asynchrony‘, due out on Song, by Toad Records from July 9th (digital) and September (on vinyl).

It follows the first single from the album, ‘Ruptured Telecine‘ and is described as a “lament for the environment”, the album itself a mostly-instrumental seven track effort driven by the immediacy of the climate crisis.

The video is by Leo Bruges – DOP on Stafford’s award-winning film, the Alan Bissett-narrated The Shutdown). Bruges’ film is an edit of ‘Dr Wise On Influenza’ – from 1919, the only known British film known to be made at the height of the Spanish Flu epidemic.
