Harking back to the early 00’s Garage / Indie scene, Fat Dads write catchy indie tunes with a DIY sensibility.
'Fat Dads' released their debut track 'Trust & Promises' in June, to great acclaim. Word of mouth on Twitter saw the track find its way to John Kennedy, who gave it a spin on Radio X. The band were also quickly picked up by UK Indie tastemakers ‘This Feeling’, who have ear-marked them as one of the best new bands in the country. The follow up single 'Taking Our Sweet Time' released in August and was picked up by both Radio 1 and Radio X, again through word of mouth.
Their third single 'Filthy Animal', released in November and played by Radio X on release day, hit 5000 streams in its first 24 hours, a feat which had taken the bands previous singles months to achieve.
Their debut EP sold out of all 300 copies within the first 48 hours of release.
All of this without contacts, PR, management, label etc, or even any gigs.
