22 Dec Trading Tunes with Phantastic Ferniture

Phantastic Ferniture are a garage rock band out of Sydney who caught our attention in November with the single ‘Gap Year‘, and then found themselves ranked #1 in one of our weekly Australian chart posts. The lead singer Julia Jacklin‘s vocal tone impressively reminds us of Angel Olsen, while the band draws from influences such as Warpaint.

They only have three songs currently on their SoundCloud page, but there’s enough brilliance within ‘Gap Year’ to convince us that 2016 could be a breakout year for Phantastic Ferniture. We wanted to get to know them a little better first and asked them what Australian tunes they’ve been enjoying lately. Have a listen below.

Closet Straights – ‘Eight Days’

“We just wanna wind down the windows and sing along, LOUD.”

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever – ‘Clean Slate’

“40 degrees outside, icy pole in hand, just got paid. YES.”

The Drones – ‘Taman Shud’

“We need a big bag of ice after that haymaker from Gareth.”

King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard – ‘Paper Mâché Dream Machine’

“Age 7, school holidays, new shoes, big dreams.”

Sampa The Great – ‘F E M A L E’

“A snippet of Badassery.”
