Fablecar / Press

“Fablecar seems to have emerged from whatever year the Pixies and U2 would have crossed paths with David Bowie. It’s a big, ambitious, self-titled debut, one that stands tall more often than falling flat. It’s refreshing to hear a young band take a swing at something wholly original. “Diamond Slice” sounds like a song that Pink Floyd would have written in 1999, had the band been recording then. The following anthem, “Threes,” hits more in line with Interpol — or, maybe more appropriately, Joy Division. Singer Mitch Elliott’s voice is a perfect blend of Bowie and Paul Banks. Other moments play more modern rock than indie/alternative, namely “Trapdoor,” which is written and performed solidly enough to appeal to both camps."”

“Do you feel you are moving on the right direction? Definitely. We have never tried to be the next big thing, or to mold our style to fit the trend of the week. At the end of the day, you have to make music that pleases YOU, and hopefully it’ll bring joy and entertainment to others as well. We simply write music that we love, and we want to share this with the world.”
