The Proper Ornaments formed in London around songwriters James Hoare (Veronica Falls/ Ultimate Painting) and Max Oscarnold (TOY). After signing up with Fortuna Pop in the UK and Slumberland in the US, and revamping the line up with the addition of drummer Robert Syme and Daniel Nellis on bass, the group toured with Metronomy, TOY, The Horrors, Crystal Stilts, Woods and returned with their debut album, Wooden Head, in the summer of 2014.
Earlier this year the band released their second long player, Foxhole. Their sound gathers elements of classic UK indie pop with shimmering jangling guitars that blend with rich harmonies reminiscent of the west coast 60's groups, and in their live shows they take these sounds to a more motorik and heavier realms.
