Bio

Hey there, I’m Lara. I’m a 20 year old surfer who loves art, music, the ocean and being creative. Surfing is the thing that used to take up most of my day, as I was competing around the world. As I started to question whether it's what I wanted, I realised that there’s always been something missing. Something else I wanted to do.

My mum has been songwriting since I was young and was in the industry in her twenties. I never thought I’d follow in her footsteps as for me my creativity always came out through my art, but of late I’ve been inspired to write lyrics and melodies about what I think and feel. Being on the road a lot as a travelling competitive surfer there’s a lot of ups and downs and uncertainty and its nice to have found an outlet that I can turn to no matter where I am; at the beach, on the plane, in my bedroom, anywhere. Music provides that outlet and I’m ready to share that with you.

Fond of Felix is my ‘something missing’.

...

The face of 'Fond of Felix', a young female singer and songwriter, stumbled across her passion for music whilst pursuing competitive surfing. Originally from Sydney, Australia, but now based on the Gold Coast, Lara writes indie electronic dance music and dabbles in production. She collaborates with other writers and producers to create a unique sound with her earthy voice and catchy ideas. Lara is also currently building her respect as a house and techno DJ under the name 'Felix.' and she plans to release some tracks under this alias shortly.
Fond of Felix emerged into the scene in mid 2019 with two successful singles, Temptation and Can't Get Thru. They gained early success with their first single 'Temptation' reaching over 170k streams. Since then two more singles have been released so far in 2020, Golden in Jan and Closure in March.
With a large collection of tracks in the bank, new material will continue to roll out over 2020. Get ready to be 'fond of' something new.

You're getting more polished with each tune you upload FoF! Production definitely seems to be your forte - the build up and break down is epic.

The vocal is nice and lowkey but then damn, FoF really opens this track up with some huge vibes. Piano house breaks always activate something in me and this had me bopping indeed.
