Fabels are Hiske Weijers, Ben Aylward (plus live, guest performer Tim Powles/The Church) who play original, experimental, progressive, dreamscape music with dynamic arrangements. Formed in Sydney, late 2010, the band have toured extensively through Australia and Europe and have released two albums ‘Zimmer’ 2012, and ‘Hi’ 2016.
Fabels’ new album ‘Minds’ is a journey into atmospheres, repetition and multilingual vocals with electronics, keys and sometimes angular and shoegaze guitar sounds. The album creates a reality set in its own time and space, its lyrical content is purposely abstract to blend into the music and to inspire the listener to make up their own meaning. Most songs were recorded with structure while some vocal parts were improvised live in the studio.
Recorded over three years with Icelandic music producer Geir Brillian Gunnarsson, the album is a true labour of love and reveals itself to be a strong artistic statement. ‘Minds’ is a direct and focussed work that keeps originality and imagination alive!
This is Fabels’ third album and it will be released on vinyl, CD and digitally through the Qusp label.
