Fyfe and Iskra Strings have launched their brand new collaborative EP, the aptly titled 'Fyfe & Iskra Strings EP 1’, which is available to listen to online now.
 
Although their first full-length collaborative project, both Fyfe and Iskra Strings have form when it comes to bridging the perceived gaps between classical, pop and alternative music. Iskra Strings have forged a reputation for working with some of the most exciting musicians recording today, regardless of genre.
 
A loose collective headed by James Underwood, Iskra have collaborated both live and in the studio with Vampire Weekend, The xx and Sufjan Stevens as well as performing with the finest musicians in the contemporary classical world. Paul Dixon, across his two acclaimed albums as Fyfe and his earlier incarnation as David’s Lyre, has never been afraid to bring classical influences into play alongside his contemporary pop sensibilities: a childhood training in violin, piano and voice add a unique twist to his thoroughly modern approach to songwriting and production.
 
Speaking on the collaboration, Fyfe proclaimed:
 
“Having spent the last few years making records alone, working with James helped to open my eyes to the power of collaboration … Reacting in real-time to someone else’s approach to harmony, melody and structure meant there was a real momentum when developing ideas together and a definite release from creative self-consciousness.”
