Yoo hoo, next stop is BRISBANE 26 April! Thanks Cameron for the 4ZZZ Reviews / 4ZZZ review of our album 'Oleander': "...Fair Maiden walk the tightrope of their chosen sound with fairly expert skill, employing a limited palette of sounds to create a cohesive but still deceptively varied record, which is, most importantly, a really enjoyable listen." Here's the whole piece http://4zzz.org.au/reviews/album/fair-maiden-oleander And here's launch details ~ April 26 The Bearded Lady ~ Fair Maiden 'Oleander' Launch - Brisbane!

Oleander LP launch tour starts in 1 week, in Hobart. This song is one of my favs from the new album. It's called 'Melting'. It speaks to me. Warm regards, Steph Crase

'Stylistically, Fair Maiden play guitar/bass/drums indie-rock seemingly influenced by things such as doo-wop, gothic-folk, garage-surf and even some pseudo-medieval undertones. It's retro and familiar, but doesn't enter into the realms of pastiche โ€“ everything feels genuine, like an authentic expression of Carey's musical personality. Fair Maiden walk the tightrope of their chosen sound with fairly expert skill, employing a limited palette of sounds to create a cohesive but still deceptively varied record, which is, most importantly, a really enjoyable listen.' #feedback 4ZZZ ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ“ก http://4zzz.org.au/reviews/album/fair-maiden-oleander http://4zzz.org.au/reviews/album/fair-maiden-oleander

๐Ÿ”ต Fair Maiden return to release their long-awaited LP 'Oleander' through Hysterical Records with a string of tour dates across the country in April and May!๐Ÿ”ต /Joined in musical makings by an incredible array of locals and newly located locals including; S>c>r>a>p>s, ALL the Weathers, Bianca Blackhall Music, Pleasure Symbols, Brainbeau, PRIMO!, Mystery Guest, Dead Roo, Edith & The Heat Pumps, G2G, Witness-K + more! / Saturday 6th April - HOBART @ The Brisbane Hotel Friday 12th April - ADELAIDE @ The Hotel Metro Friday 26th April - BRISBANE @ The Bearded Lady Saturday 27th April - SYDNEY @ The Union Hotel Saturday 4th May - MELBOURNE @ The Old Bar "Named after the poisonous tree, Oleander - Fair Maidenโ€™s second album, is like a slow death. These are love songs in all that love encompasses: fearsome and sweet, terrible and all-consuming. Recorded over two days in a converted church 'Holy Rollers Hall' in Adelaide late 2017 - 'Oleander' embodies the space in tone and form. First, as transformation: Oleander forecasts the turbulence of finding oneself in another and resisting at the same time. Then, in its sound: each of these 10 songs swim in cavernous spaces, Ellen Careyโ€™s entrancing vocals joined by Harriet Fraser-Barbour (drums), Steph Crase (bass) and Hamish Baird (guitar) to evoke dark hymns." ๐Ÿ’› ๐Ÿ’š ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿ’œ
