Radio13

Flying Nun Records is proud to welcome celebrated New Zealand singer-songwriter Reb Fountain to the family, announcing her worldwide signing to their independent label roster. Coinciding with the special news, Reb has announced a new self-titled album along with a breathtaking new single titled Samson. Reb Fountain is due for release on May 1st on Flying Nun Records.

Enter Samson, a rolling, emotional tug of war, brought to life in an accompanying music video starring Medulla Oblongata who shares a rousing and compelling performance. Filmed in Reb’s home, the video for Samson was directed and edited by Lola Fountain-Best.

The recordings for Reb’s self-titled record came together in the seasoned walls of Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studios. This came about after Fountain was asked to perform, record and tour with Finn on his ‘Out of Silence’ album. Longtime studio collaborator and Head Engineer at Roundhead Simon Gooding manned the helm of their 3 week recording and mixing stint, alongside fellow musical collaborator Dave Khan on producing duties and Chris Chetland (owner of Kog Studios) who mastered the final result. Joining Reb in the studio to record the album, Ben Woolley of The Yarra Benders and drummer Logan Compain provided the intuitive backing, along with cameos from Finn Andrews and Elroy Finn. Reb revealed the first track off the album in March 2019 with Faster, accompanied by a video on Super-8 film by Lola Fountain-Best.
