Formed in 1997 by three high school friends, including Browne and bassist Peggy Frew, Art of Fighting in its first incarnation quickly released their debut EP ‘The Very Strange Year’ [1998], followed by the ‘Empty Nights’ EP [1999].
During this time, the band’s line up continued to evolve, with the inclusion of Ollie’s brother Miles Browne on guitar and keys, and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Marty Brown completing the line up in 2000.
Already beloved by many, the band recorded and released their debut album ‘Wires’ on the Trifekta label in early 2001. Highly anticipated, the album went on to exceed all expectations of the band’s hopeful fans, garnering considerable critical recognition in the process including the ARIA award for Best Alternative Release.
A prolonged break followed, the band emerging once again in 2004 with the glorious, aptly titled ‘Second Storey’. Carefully crafted and obsessively detailed, the album reveals a more mature outlook – a slight hardening of the youthful honesty that was characteristic of the first album.
The genesis of Art of Fighting’s third album ‘Runaways’ involved a long and collaborative process which saw the four band mates relax as they took the time to let their new songs unfold. With the help of engineer Steven Schram, they set about capturing their live sound on record. Longtime collaborator Tim Whitten joined the band for mixing in the closing stages of 2006.
Art of Fighting will release a new album in 2019.
