Eora/Sydney-based indie-rock band FVNERAL have released their long-awaited moving debut EP, WHEN I GET SOBER today. The EP, co-produced by band member Tim Blunt, and Phan Sjarif (Middle Kids, Cry Club, Velvet Trip), features five tracks which touch on morality and intimacy, exposing the paradigm of human nature through iridescent indie music.
With each song diving deep into vulnerabilities of the past, conducted faithfully by dual vocalists Tim Blunt and Ally Turner, FVNERAL’s debut EP flourishes with emotive prowess, catharsis and sincere storytelling. Listen to the EP now below.
FVNERAL said of the EP, “‘WHEN I GET SOBER’ is ultimately a collection of songs about self-discovery and growth. The various songs are meditations on grief and loss (‘EVER KNOWN’), falling in love (‘CALIFORNIA STREET’), mental illness and the power of supportive relationships (‘GOD DAMN LEDs’), moving beyond the gender binary and celebrating your true self (‘GOODB(i)YE’), and the consequences of substance abuse (‘SOBER’).”
“Coming together to craft these songs truly saw the seven of us move from friends to chosen family, learning how to show up for each other in the difficult times and how to find joy in overcoming them together. The EP is our attempt to articulate the heaviest parts of the human experience. It’s allowed us to hold these experiences with a warmth, hope and levity that we couldn’t have come close to creating by ourselves, and has allowed us to cultivate a space for each other that is gentle, inclusive, and comforting. Now we’re excited to invite the world to be part of this community too.”
