New Release & Video: Rachael Dadd – Palaeontologist

In advance of her forthcoming January / February UK Tour, contemporary folk multi-instrumentalist Rachael Dadd is to release a new video for ‘Palaeontologist’. Taken from her recently released album Flux, ‘Palaeontologist’ is based on a true anecdote about a man fulfilling his dream when he discovers a whole fossilised dinosaur. As Rachael says, “In relation to evolution, extinction, love and warfare, I wonder if the secrets to our survival lie buried with the fossils?”

The song asks “was there love in the Cretaceous”, Rachael continues, “Who knows, but in contrast I like how the video is basically comprised of all the stuff I love, playing music and creating stuff with some off my favourite people, and having my kids there too for all the fun and creativity they bring into my life”.
