About this artist...
Formed in a fallen tree in the woods of Mount Cook by three former New Zealand School of Music students, Fuyuko’s Fables (pronounced Foo-You-Ko-S) cut their teeth playing shows with Wellington and New Zealand music luminaries such as Glass Vaults, Seth Frightening, Urbantramper, and most recently opening shows for the talented Shenandoah Davis (Seattle).
Their first self titled EP, released in 2011, was warmly received; labelled “The best debut e.p. of 2011” by Einstein Music Journal, featured on largeheartedboy.com’s daily download list as well as the dadada.com’s winter hibernation mix, and described by inb4track.com as “a band that creates dreamy folk compositions with the combination of well arranged instrumentation and harmonious vocals.”
Expanding into a five piece allowed them to create a more unique and intricate sound. The group has also been known to bring in a little extra help from some of Wellington’s most talented musicians. Fuyuko’s Fables desire to document this more complex sound, coinciding with one of the members temporary departure abroad, led to the group recording their second EP, ‘Everybody is Weird’ in 2012.
Ex-drummer Al Green now records as Groeni.
