Bio

Indie-folk darlings Simone and Girlfunkle were born on one of North Perth's hazy, sun-drenched afternoons. Using lush three-part female harmonies and delightful arrangements, they produce shimmering pop gems which will warm you up.

“Fight On” is the first single in a little while from WA folk-pop stalwarts Simone & Girlfunkle. What may seem like relative centuries to WA government arts grant departments has felt like a split-second to a group of folk-loving vagabonds and their everyday trials! Bizarre surgeries, the loss of beloved band members and serious Netflix addictions have cursed them at every turn. Some would say they battled against all odds to bring to you this offering of what their mums call sensory bliss!

"Fight On" was produced and engineered by Dave Parkin (Tired Lion, Jebediah, Bob Evans) and mastered by Grammy-nominated William Bowden (Gotye, Emma Louise) it's a good little egg about sorting out your love life.

They lay it down on 27 May at Babushka. Joining them are killer chillers Felicity Groom & band and Ryan Beno! A Saturday night is a big responsibility. People will gather to party! Something special will happen in that room! It's happening! We will acquit our grant! Fight On! You don't want to miss it! Fight On ;)

What else to say other than this is a true delight. Effortless, winsome pop.

A great pop song, yes, but I love all the textures and melodies in this song too. Is that a mellotron? Awesome.

Another sweet, melodic shot of pop. Catchy chorus, lovely organ sounds, great vocals. Best of all, sounds like you're having a ball. Good one guys.
