Bio

There's something captivating about watching a band hit their stride. For Brisbane dream gaze trio Fragile Animals, that time is now. Their 2017 debut EP Light That Fades was met with a joyous welcome. While their sophomore EP ‘Only Shallow//Only More’ was the graduation with flying colours every band looks to strike upon. Songs from both releases found open ears and airplay at Triple J, becoming an Unearthed Feature Artist and winning a place on the line-up to their local Triple J presented Big Pineapple Music Festival.

Latest single ‘Waiting’ serves up a banquet of catchy melodies from vocalist Victoria Jenkins delivering a rich slice of pop amidst the powerful, driving rhythms of drummer Kyle Shipton and Daniel Parkinson's cavalcade of rich guitar tones.

Fragile Animals sculpt bittersweet indie-rock, inhaling their influences and exhaling carefully as a smart young band carving out their own sound. A luscious layering of slow burning choruses and intricate guitar melodies – part indie-pop, part shoegaze paragon.

Although in only early stages, Fragile Animals live prowess has gradually been honed over the last 18 months, not only crushing the stage at the aforementioned Big Pineapple Music Festival, but also within support slots with the likes of Polish Club, Bugs, Jebediah as well as on east coast tours of their own.

More music is recorded and ready, this time with ARIA nominated producer Dylan Adams (DMA’s, Skeggs, West Thebarton) on board. More touring is on the cards, but this time with one eye on Australia and the other on the world.

i really like fragile animals, their sound is so realised and this is my new fave song by them. listen to this and try not get totally absorbed by the layers of golden dreamy shoegaze.
