Bio

Casual Fan is a 6-piece musical collective from Sydney, started when songwriter Nathan moved from his home town of Newcastle to Sydney’s inner-west and pulled together some new friends to take his folk songs in a different direction. With hints of indie rock, lo-fi and late 2000’s baroque pop, it’s sort of like if Broken Social Scene bore a child with #1 Dads, but then sent the kid to pre-school with Real Estate. People like Claire Mooney from Triple J are saying things like ‘it’s quite simply…beautiful’.

Gave me a big rush of bands that I used to and still love. But completely not at the same time? Boy & Bear, Sam Cromack from Ball Park Music, Half Moon Run just to name a few. i'm thankful for the reminiscence. This is a refreshing addition to the palette of songs i've heard today and it's quite simply...beautiful.
