Look who’s playing FBi Turns 10!


Together with the Australian institute of Music, we’ve been on the lookout for two acts to open FBi Turns 10.

The votes are in… Congratulations to indie folk rockers Belle and the Bone People and dance-floor duo Olympic Ayres.

They’re playing alongside The Presets, Hermitude, Sarah Blasko and Midnight Juggernauts. Sunday September 8 at Carriageworks.

Belle & The Bone People

BATBP 1Belle and The Bone People are a 5 piece from Sydney’s Inner West. Fusing elements as diverse as jazz, blues, Dixieland and funk, Belle and Co posses a unique, danceable sound. Employing a 8-piece configuration for their live show, including a 2-piece horn section and diverse instrumentation, the band create an infectious exuberance on stage.

Having released their debut self-titled EP in June this year, Belle and The Bone People create songs that range from brooding, slow burn soundscapes to foot-stomping, up tempo hoe downs.

Olympic Ayres

OLYMPICAYRESOlympic Ayres capture memories of passionate youth and exotic landscapes with their lush, vibrant, electronic sounds. Anthemic melodies pull at your core, forcing you to release all anxieties and embrace total carefree bliss just in time for summer.

The young band from Sydney started producing music in a dusty attic, building songs that incorporated guitar, bass and synthesizers with whatever else they found lying around. Since then, they’ve played among the likes of World’s End Press, Movement and Van She.
