“descend the stairs, bend your legs, melting one by one” … And so begins The Loafing Heroes’ first video and single from their brand new album “meandertales” (release date April 2019). Filmed in locations in Lisbon and Ireland, the lyrics, melody and movement of “stairs” convey the dreamscape of a distorted fairytale. Witness burning hair, skin turning to water, a software that is beyond repair, and an enigmatic woman telling the singer just to breathe. This is the striking new single from a band taking to the road and the airwaves once again.
Directed by Otwin Biernat
Song written by Bartholomew Ryan
Produced and mixed by Tadklimp
Mastered by Moritz Ilner
Featuring Bartholomew Ryan (vocals, guitar), Giulia Gallina (autoharp, vocals, percussion), Judith Retzlik (viola)
WE DID IT! (We made the Kickstarter goal, now step two - the recording of the new album!)
A big thank you to each and every one of you 96 backers of this album project! We are so moved and encouraged by all the support! We are now in Berlin on Day 3 of the recording! We will send you some pictures of the studio in the next few days, but for now we´re sending a big hug and thanks to you all again. x
- The Loafing Heroes
Hello everyone! Our crowdfunding project to make our new album this July is now live (until the 5th July). But we need your help and in return you will receive a brand new Loafing Heroes album! It has been quite a journey so far - since the band's gentle beginnings in Denmark many moons ago, then loafing on through to Berlin and Dublin and onto Lisbon where we are now based in fine-tuning our dream-folk sound & vision. We're very excited with the possibility of your invaluable contribution and collaboration.
More info on project, goals, bio, etc below.

Thanks to everyone at Bar Irreal last night for a beautiful evening. Over the course of the concert, we managed to play 5 brand new songs for the first time ever and there were no riots! PS. Watch this space for the launch of our crowdfunding in the next few days for the recording of the new album!
Making a music video with director Otwin Biernat for our new single 'Stairs' from our forthcoming album on the outskirts of Lisbon.
