FAWNS OF LOVE | PERMANENT | TEST PATTERN RECORDS | JAN. 18TH, 2019

 

Bio:

“For the past year, my life has been in a complete flux,” says Jenny Andreotti, one half of the married Bakersfield, California-based dreampop duo Fawns of Love. “People have moved away, relationships have changed, and this has challenged my belief that people’s love for you is permanent.”

 Along with husband, Joseph Andreotti, Jenny has made her realization a theme of Permanent, the second Fawns of Love full-length, and first since signing to Test Pattern Records. Permanent is scheduled for release on Jan. 18th, 2019.

 Permanent follow-up the band’s recently issued EP documenting its session for L.A.-based radio show Part Time Punks. The EP also includes a cover of “Rocket Science” by one of Fawns of Love’s biggest influences, The Chills.

 “Being such a huge fan of The Chills comes from this belief that they have one of the most eclectic and exciting back catalogs, and are also making contemporary music that is not only amazing but socially and politically significant as well,” Jenny says.

Both full-time educators – Joseph teaches middle school, Jenny is a full-time instructor at CSU-Bakersfield – the Andreottis have been married for 13 years, performing together for 16, and recording, touring and releasing music throughout that time under various names and labels. In 2013, they began a break when Jenny enrolled in a history graduate program, but by 2017, it was time to begin being a band again, including choosing a new name.


Songs that inspired Permanent by Fawns of Love


 “One of our favorite records is Hounds of Love by Kate Bush,” Joseph says. “We wanted a name that would pay homage to that.”

 In addition to The Chills and Kate Bush, additional influences on Fawns of Love include familiar names such as Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Blur, Pulp, Slowdive, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and Sparks.

 Fawns of Love takes all of these legendary sounds, which some might think of as cold or aloof, and makes them pop with overtones of The Smiths, New Order, and the warmth that comes from the Andreotti’s many years of making music together.

 In the short time that Fawns of Love have been releasing music, a steady stream of praise has met the heartfelt work which Jenny and Joseph record at home using vintage equipment.

 Paste proclaimed the band “a dreampop gem,” FLOOD called the debut album Who Cares About Tomorrow “perfectly woozy,” evoking “the soft gauze of Cocteau Twins and Slowdive,” MAGNET said it “drifts along dreamily,” and The Big Takeover noted the “obsessive joy in Fawns of Love’s take on shoegaze.”

 Permanent, the second full-length by Fawns of Love, is scheduled for release on Jan. 18th, 2019 by Test Pattern Records, preceded by the single “Someday,” scheduled for release on Oct. 5th, 2018.
