Fragile Creatures formed in Brighton in 2012, when songwriter Adam Kidd signed an independent publishing deal. Their first album And Other Wild Things came out in March 2016, delayed by a series of setbacks. Following this they decided to adopt a more independent approach. In the last two years they learnt how to self-record while Kidd took an MA in the music industry at WaterBear music college. In May 2019 the band released Heart Beat EP, to test the water for their new independence, and to build anticipation for Punk Yacht.
