Fables is a musical ensemble from Auckland, New Zealand and their debut EP Portraits came out on Second Hand Records on the 7th of September. Jess Bailey has written a fascinating collection of elegant and intriguing folk songs. The writing is so good throughout the record and there are so many moments that I love like the beginning of the lead single We Could Be All where she sings I was unaware of the ones who cared that I put my right foot first. In a way so simple, but still somehow unique and compelling way to deliver a sentiment. My own favorite song of the EP is this beautifully arranged How To Be Comfortable, but do hit the links on the bandcamp player below in order to buy/hear whole lovely EP.
