Bio

Fiig are a Melbourne based Folk/Pop band. Their collection of songs written by singer/songwriters Hannah Petocz and Andrew Jordan are both lyrically intriguing and melodically full of roosty charm. 2011 Fiig won first prize in the Melbourne Fresh Band Competition. The band recorded a demo and toured the east coast playing shows with Emma Davis, Loon Lake, Hungry Kids of Hungary, and performed a live set and interview with Art Sound FM. 2012 Fiig received regular airplay on both Triplej and Triplej unearthed, volunteering a song for Triplej's Red Cross mixed tape and performing for the Lentils as Anything, Fundraising Masquerade Ball. The band played at the Spring Fling Street Festival, Fest La Frog and Folk, Rhythm and Life (main stage). Fiig finished off the year launching their first EP, hiring out 1000 pound bend and creating an evening of bliss for the sold out event. 2013 Fiig changed their name from Atluk and flew to New Zealand to record and perform. The band are currently on the A&R Department, launching the single (with music video) 'Bass Drum' off their album 'Largely Happy', and have future plans of touring Australia.

I was drawn to this through the band's name and thought, 'hrmm, wonder if they've got anything to do with Atluk'. Bingo! A new beginning for these talented musicians and this tune in particular shows how they can swiftly move from jubilant pop to chant-able folk.
