Label: Sizzle Teen Records
Shoegaze from Vancouver BC
Vancouver, BC’s Fantasy Prom was created on the premise of musical freedom and expression. The members spent many years playing in “genre specific” bands that were limited and bound to song structures all bands within punk, garage or noise rock typically follow.
Bored with this mindset, founding member and main songwriter Richie Fudalewski began writing and recording music. 28 songs later he recruited like-minded musicians such as Amelia Fudalewski on vocals (Yung Mums), Denyss McKnight (The Black Halos) and Ross LaLonde (Crystal Swells) to complete the band.
The band’s sound blends ethereal-dreamy melodic vocals over top of sonically sheer guitars that crank insistent strumming, accompanied by unyielding bass and drum patterns, through a slew of effects until the listener is awash in overtones and echoes crafted to stimulate rather than numb.
The band independently released 2 singles before they teamed up with Sizzle Teen Records to release their exceptional debut EP, “Glistening”. The EP quickly garnered positive attention from major press outlets as well as college radio.
2014 sees the band continuing to spread their ethereal noise across countless venues, as tour dates and multiple releases are currently in the works. The band’s undeniable work ethic and dominating live show will see them as a praiseworthy force for years to come.
