Fool Child + NORTH Indie/Alternative
Fool Child – Indie/Alternative
Fool Child are an English songwriting duo whose musical output spans dreamy Aussie coastal-folk, with the alternative/indie-rock sound of their homeland. The reason for such a sound undoubtedly lies, in part, to their professed admiration for artists such as ‘Angus & Julia Stone’ and ‘Ben Howard’. Perhaps a more crucial part of the narrative, however, is the nature of this coming together of two young musicians new to the city of Melbourne. After both completing separate travel journeys around South East Asia in mid-2016, Matty Green (Manchester) and Scott Harrison (Liverpool) met in a hostel in Melbourne and got straight to work on the project. Often found blending the delayed guitar tones of bands like ‘Foals’ with rhythmic grooves inspired by the likes of ‘Frank Ocean’, the lads are unashamed about their wide-range of influences and – living in the Australian capital of culture – are seemingly no strangers to the eclectic mix of great musicians the city has to offer. At the heart of the music is an inherent thirst for discovery. Wistful tunes laced with thematic lyrics; fitting with the modern discourse and the youthful tendency to travel, to love, to lose. Remaining avid lovers of their respective hometowns, Fool Child boast a fierce British charm yet are embracing this Melbourne scene, VB in one hand, cuppa’ tea in the other.
Being among the Melbourne live music scene for quite some time, in many different projects, it was only a matter of time before local Melbournian, Dylan Ross, created the project ‘North’. Upon releasing his single ‘I Won’t Wait’ in early March 2017, it had grabbed some online traction and even caught the eye of Australian Music Producer at Triple J Unearthed – Claire Mooney. “This was a really pleasant touch to my afternoon, thank you. This was very beautiful. You have a great voice that allows you to keep it simple, yet still interesting.” With North’s live performance being one not to miss – his 2 piece band plan to make the most of their time on stage.
