Fragile Creatures have shared a new song Sunshine from their forthcoming debut EP which will be released mid-August.
Fragile Creatures are a band from Brighton on a mission to restore Britain’s reputation for original guitar pop. They come equipped with an inventive songbook full of instant classics led by catchy melodies, tight harmonies, clever arrangements and great lyrics. They released their debut single, double a-side Dear Michael/She Makes Me Nervous on 11 June 2012 gaining them rave reviews and radio play from Absolute Radio, BBC Introducing and many local stations. Dear Michael went on to win the award for best music video in the Brighton Music Awards 2013.
Last year they shared their eponymous song Fragile Creatures as the first track from a proposed EP release. Shortly afterwards tragedy struck when their mentor, David Vatchnadze, the man who founded their independent label DNVMusic and saw their potential, died unexpectedly as the band were heading into the studio to put some the final touches to the EP. The release was put on hold while legal matters were resolved but Fragile Creatures never stopped working, gigging regularly and writing new material they will now be recording for their debut album. Heading to Bath for most of July with producer/engineer Stuart Bruce whose experience of working with diverse artists (from Kate Bush to Yes via Barry White – Stuart was the man who engineered Do They Know It’s Christmas) makes him ideally placed to capture the creative essence of a band so hard to pigeon-hole.
Sunshine finally paves the way for the release of this delayed debut, an upbeat and appropriately summery number. Fragile Creatures plan to make the EP available as a free download through bandcamp page as a thank you for the patient faithful – two years is a long wait between releases.
