We're big fans of up-and-coming retro-inspired garage band The Fabergettes. So we're excited to announce that they are releasing their much anticipated debut EP at Sydney's Good God Small Club on Friday March 9. This comes after a year of outstanding live shows that has earned the band a strong following for their unique take on the 60s girl group sound.
The Fabergettes have risen to the attention of the Sydney music scene following a recent stint as Triple J’s Unearthed feature artist that saw them praised for their infectious blend of doo-wop harmonies and cosmic surf licks. They’ve also recently supported Eleanor Friedberger’s shows.
The band is fronted by the sassy Nat Martin, a former choir girl from Cuthbert & the Night Walkers. Nat now shares the stage with the classic doe-eyed string formation that includes Bec Allen (Catcall) and Cipi Morgan along with their male bestie Marten Culity on drums. Nat says that whilst the band pays homage to the traditional 60s girl band formula, they take inspiration from all things vintage and kitsch “The name ‘Fabergettes’ comes from ‘Faberge’, those decorative and slightly naff Russian eggs that people collect for some reason”.
Like the band's pin-up poster girl, Barbarella, The Fabergettes have a penchant for both the trashy and saucy which manifests itself in the tongue and cheek tone of their first self-titled EP offering. The self released EP will feature Ding Dong, a psychedelic surf mash-up inspired by cult sci-fi films.
It's not just Bobbysix.com that is getting all weak at the knees for the trio either. Our old mate Dom Alessio from Triple J is gushing too: “One day this will soundtrack a Tarantino grindhouse flick,” he enthused, while our brothers over at The AU Review are also impressed. “The Fabergettes not only walk the walk and talk the talk, they definitely sound like being the next Big Thing.”
Doors for the event at on March 9th will open early at 7.30pm and you would be a goddamn fool to miss it.
