This folk rock band are one that have been around for a while now with a number of different lineups, yet they have managed to keep their sound relatively the same throughout. We have mentioned Felix Fables a few times in the past here on Milky Tea Kid and they are a band that I like to keep up to date with when it comes to new releases and they are about to release a new EP, A Little Rain. They managed to raise over £1600 for the project with fans pledging for anything from a copy of the EP through to a full band house concert. I do know that the band paid for the whole recording process by playing gigs for a week in Paris. (Hence the epic picture of the band playing at the Sacré Coeur!) It is always a good sign when a band has a solid fan base who are able to help them record new music (especially as it is so hard at the moment for musicians to make money from their recorded music).
Felix Fables’ unique stamp on folk music draws from elements of Americana, Blues and Indie and is over-scored by soaring four-part harmonies. This all comes together beautifully when they perform live and it sounds like they captured that energy in the recording of the new EP as well. Make sure you take advantage of the free download of title track, A Little Rain.
This is a band worth keeping your eye on, worth seeing live and worth listening to. The EP will be launched on iTunes and Amazon on 5th April 2013 but is available for pre-sale through the band’s fully funded Pledge music campaign page. http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/a-little-rain
