Sydneysiders Fabels make their way to Melbourne with their sophomore Ep in hand. This is their second last Australian show before heaiding to Europe for some late (northern) summer shows in France, Netherlands, Germany etal. With a pedigree that counts SWIRL and Psychic date, Fabels have a true right to be labelled dreampop, and they are quickly becoming masters of this form.
