FAUVELY – “BREAK”
WATCH ME OVERCOMPLICATE THIS (2017)
March 31, 2017
Fauvely is the dream-pop project of Chicago-based songwriter, singer and guitarist Sophie Leigh, who settled in the Midwest by way of Savannah, GA. Musical influences include Mazzy Star, Angel Olsen, and Lykke Li.
Fauvely’s sound is dreamy, yet driving, with a hint of folk. Delicate vocals shine above hazy guitar to create a delicate, raw texture. The lyrics are honest and often harrowing. Members include Scott Cortez on bass, Alice Kraynak on violin and vocals, Alex Burns on slide guitar, and Chris DePorter on drums.
The EP’s first single, “Watch Me Overcomplicate This” is streaming now on Bandcamp. A cassette-edition is forthcoming from Midwest Action. Fauvely will be celebrating their release at the Empty Bottle 3.30.17.
