Fenne moved to Bristol when she was 18, embarking on an art foundation course and discovering a love of photography – she shoots all her own artwork, inspired by the candid work of Wolfgang Tillmans – during her studies. Upon arrival in the city, Fenne flung herself into the local music scene and joined forces with Chiverin; the growing music community founded by her now-manager. “All my friends are doing super trendy techno music or are in badass bands,” says Fenne, which goes some of the way to explaining the enticing evolution of her sound.
The debut album 'On Hold' was self-released by Fenne in 2018. Written in sporadic bursts, the tracks were predominantly recorded in Bristol and on the Isle of Wight with producers Tamu Massif and James Thorpe with help also from the band Champs, while ‘Brother’ was recorded with and produced by PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish.
