Bio

THE FIX UPS self titled debut album is the antidote to boring dancefloors everywhere a genre mashing pop freakout! Like an 80s Trans Am sports car through the French Riviera this is opulent pop with a sense of style. 2000s indie dancefloor bangers, and new wave synths is just the beginning as the gentle lead vocals lure you to your death like a siren of the sea. It’s art pop and punk dance. And it’s not taking any prisoners.

Doing a 17 date tour across the USA isn’t how most bands would start, but then again The Fix Ups aren’t most bands. Upon returning home, the band set up a makeshift studio in a Templestowe farmhouse and began tracking their debut album. The 8 songs to emerge are anything but boring, mimicking their USA adventures the band likewise mash genres with tactical precision. It’s pop but not as you know it. It’s dance without DJs and incredibly fun!

You’ll find knotted wood, harsh whiskey and jilted lovers deep in the DNA of this dark rumbler

Crispy synth you can't help but bop to. Keen to hear more and see how you continue to develop.
