The Folk Implosion
Formed in 1993 by Lou Barlow (Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr.) and John Davis as a songwriting and DIY recording project, The Folk Implosion released an album and a few singles on Communion before finding unexpected success in 1995 when they were commissioned to do the soundtrack to the film Kids. Their song “Natural One” became a hit single, reaching no. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 and no. 4 on the Modern Rock Charts. They released one more album, Dare to be Surprised, on Communion before signing to Interscope Records. The band dissolved shortly after the release of their major label debut, 1999’s One Part Lullaby.
They surprised fans when they reunited in 2021 and self-released the Feel It If You Feel It EP in 2022. The Folk Implosion have now begun work on their first new album in over 23 years, due sometime in 2023.
