FELLA / Press

“FELLA are an indie/ska band from Slough who are full of attitude and decent music. Their latest EP ‘State of Affairs’ ups the standard for this four piece even more with an EP launch at Camden’s famous Proud Gallery next month, it is needless to say that anticipation is high for FELLA. One thing that can be predicted for this band is that playing some of the UK’s best venues they won’t remain unsigned British talent for long! With such an outstanding EP now under their belts the question remains will they be able to up the anti any more than they already have. Rating - 4.5/5”

“You’d be forgiven for surmising Fella as “some nice lads from Slough“. And as pleasant and innocuous as that may be, it is simply not good enough. This foursome of charming Slough-boys are winning streams of fans with their pop-indie-skank-rock, that is reminiscent of a non-pretentious Ordinary Boys or a slightly more catchy post-uni Terrorvision. The boys are growing as local darling for BBC Introducing and are currently wowing reams and reams of new fans at repeated return shows in hipster-hub Camden (dates available online at fellatheband.com). It is a matter of time before they crop up in your local venue or on your radio station, with impressive live shows and songs that are almost intrusive in their presence in your memory for hours after inception.Don’t be the last of your chums to like them on Facebook or to follow them on Twitter. Their debut EP, State of Affairs, is out 29th June.”

“Fed up of all the ‘grime’ music that cluttered the airwaves in 2011? Need some indie lads in your life? Well then look no further than Fella. The four-piece band from Slough only formed last year but are already building up a loyal following on the London scene. Laddish in name and sound, they sing about everyday life woes in a simple, but effective style that is definitely easy on the ear. They say their influences are The Clash, The Rifles and Jack Penate. Check out their song ‘Donna’ below & visit their Youtube channel to listen some more.”

“Introducing Fella, an aptly named four piece from the musical hot-bed of Slough, home to self professed ‘grit-pop’ rock of [Viva] Brother. Whereas Brother were all hype, bluster and ego, (some would say at the expense of any real musical substance). Fella have adopted a more humble, softly, softly approach which may just serve them well in the long-term. That’s not to say their progress since formation in June last year hasn’t been remarkable, a growing ‘army’ of fans and a recent headline show at The Camden Barfly are only likely to grow the interest. We Are The Foolish is a joyous, jaunty, anthemic indie romp, best enjoyed with your collars turned up.”

“Just been tipped off about "the new Brother". Meet... Fella”

“Since forming in June, Slough four-piece Fella have already received airplay on BBC Introducing, and played their latest gig at Windsor Firestation on Friday, September 16. I caught up with Peter Bromfield and fellow members Josh Tuck, Steve Smith and Arran Johnstone for a chat about banter, Jedward and their thoughts on Viva Brother. (See the full interview via the link below)”

“Fella is a four-piece indie rock band from Slough, featuring Peter Bromfield, Josh Tuck, Steve Smith and Arran Johnstone. The band formed in 2011 and their first live gig was a charity event last month at the Squirrel Pub in Amersham, which raised more than £15,000 for the Jessica Rose Foundation. Since then they have already made their mark in the local music scene with regular gigs around Berkshire and air play on BBC Introducing. The boys, all in their 20s, spent a lot of time coming up with their quirky band name. Peter, 26, said: “We wanted a name that was easy to remember, stood out and said something about the type of guys we are.” Their musical influences come from punk and rock artists like The Clash, Radiohead, The Vaccines, Jack Penate, Oasis, Stone Roses and The Libertines. They describe their music as ‘indie edge with catchy hooks and toe tapping melodies.’ The band aim to release their first EP album this autumn.”
