8:00pm, Wed 8 November, 2017
OAF Gallery, NSW
With a handful of irresistible songs, and a sound that is comfortably familiar yet wonderfully original, Fragile Animals have appeared seemingly out of nowhere as one of Australia's must-see new bands. Currently touring their debut EP 'Light That Fades'.
There's something about the sweetly melancholic indie rock of Fragile Animals that just tingles the spine. Evolving from one person's bedroom-written songs, Fragile Animals consists of Victoria Jenkins (vocals/bass), Daniel Parkinson (guitar) and Kyle Shipton (drums); an ensemble capable of creating an incredibly detailed sound using just a few core elements. From their blissfully catchy-but-sombre melodies, to the exquisite daydreamy voice of singer Victoria Jenkins, the Sunshine Coast three-piece create breathtaking music that moves with an effortless glide.
Start to finish, Fragile Animals' debut is a joyous listen. Each new song affirms the band's signature sound yet reveals a slightly different side - from the radio-friendly hooks of openers Signals and Light That Fades, to the shimering beat-driven Smaller Circles, all the way through to the haunting finale, second single Home. For a band at the very beginning of their career, their first offering feels so detailed and finely crafted... a testament both to the skill of the individuals in the band and their chemistry together.
