Bio

There's something about the sweetly melancholic indie rock of Fragile Animals that just tingles the spine. From their blissfully catchy-but-sombre melodies, to the exquisite daydreamy voice of singer Victoria Jenkins, the Sunshine Coast three-piece create breathtaking music that moves with an effortless glide.

Evolving from one person's bedroom-written songs, Fragile Animals consists of Victoria Jenkins (vocals/bass), Daniel Parkinson (guitar) and Kyle Shipton (drums); an ensemble capable of creating an incredibly detailed sound using just a few core elements. Rather than being instantly transparent of their influences, Fragile Animals merely imply. The end result is music that is rich but subtle, where each song is detailed and coloured but allowed enough room to soar.

With a handful of irresistible songs, and a sound that is comfortably familiar yet wonderfully original, Fragile Animals have appeared seemingly out of nowhere as one of Australia's must-see new bands.

Following the release of their debut single 'Signals', which received commendation as a finalist in the APRA AMCOS Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition, Fragile Animals have reappeared with 'Home'. Taken from 'Light That Fades', their soon to be released debut EP, 'Home' is a haunting daydream of guitars, drums, and vocals each carrying none of the coldness the lyrics hold dear.

i like to get lost in shoegaze, not for things to get lost in shoegaze. and i feel like this makes light work of that tightrope.

I want to go home and cuddle up next to this gently textured track. Those warm guitars are a real charm.
