Phantastic Ferniture is the project of old friends Julia Jacklin (vocals), Elizabeth Hughes (guitar) and Ryan K Brennan (drums) who wanted to shake the shackles of their meticulously crafted solo work to experience a second, giddy adolescence.
“I’d gone straight into folk music,” says Jacklin, “so every experience I’d had on stage was playing sad music with a guitar in my hand. I thought, I would love to know what it’s like to make people feel good and dance.”
Untied by fern puns and a love of leisurewear, the band met up whenever schedules would allow, writing songs and playing smatterings of dates to an increasingly devoted audience. Eventually it was decreed that an album should follow.
Their debut self-titled album was produced by Brennan, recorded at Sydney’s Studios 301, Defwolf and One Flight Up, with additional vocals tracked at The Sitting Room in New Zealand.
Following positive reaction to early singles Fuckin 'n' Rollin and Gap Year, Phantastic Ferniture will be released on July 27th via Polyvinyl Record Co., Transgressive Records, Universal Music Canada and the bands own Make Out Records in Australia/NZ.
