Bio

Blending the ethereal soundscapes of indie-folk with the lighthearted clutter of surf-rock, Fool Child’s dreamy tones walk the tightrope between meaningful and playful. Think: Angus Stone vocals splattered on a Foals-inspired backdrop, frolicking around on stage akin to Mac DeMarco and his troupe of trouble makers. The four-piece are unashamed about their wide-range of influences and entice their listeners with this amalgamation of genre, alongside their raucous live show.

The original members, Scott Harrison and Matthew Green, chance-met whilst traveling and, upon discovering a mutual appreciation for dad jokes and uncannily similar music tastes, set sail for the Melbourne shores. Originally a duo, Fool Child honed their sound busking in Australia’s cultural capital, but with their sights set on reaching wider audiences and with growing intrigue from the global blogosphere, the boys decided to expand the band. Expect a seriously not-so-serious performance live, with the members humouring one another on stage whilst reeling you in with their catchy choruses and sporadically organised beats.

The interaction between the guitar and vocals in the verses makes this song for me.
I love the simple excellence of tasteful instrumentation and the lyrics so f*cking good to. "...you cut out your heart and dance on your own" - dying! This is a solid tune.
