The Fancy Dress Party... friends, brothers, lovers - dabbling in experimental indie folk, drawing influences from Arcade Fire to Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens to CocoRosie. Based in London, but with hearts in Essex & South Wales. 'Multi armed and multi talented bucolic folk group drawing similarities with Beirut' - Culture as a Dare 'The Fancy Dress Party - big folk, welsh strings, epic outros' - High Off The Dancehalls 'Whilst there is a playful (filled with glockenspiels and delicate intricate melodies) feature to their songs that call to mind the new-folk of Noah and the Whale and Peggy Sue, there is also a more introspective intricacy and classical embelish, that echos Sufjan Stevens, Beirut, Owen Pallet and others... some of their early songs to emerge online show a real promise for a really good new band.' - rockfeedback.com
