Whether it’s through social media or her music with Tempe-based Fairy Bones, guitarist-singer Chelsey Louise isn’t afraid to share her struggles with mental illness.
I decided to give this song to my good friend, Madison MacDonald, an extremely talented dancer who brings so much emotion to her performances. I was on the verge of tears while filming this video with the best all-female team I could ask for, RaySquared - Ray² Productions & Ashli Maria Scott. I knew they could capture the battle with anxiety and depression that this song deals with.
It might take a few spins through the buzzy Pixies-meets-Weezer rock of Fairy Bones’ new album 0% Fun before the heavy themes land, but they’re in there. “The record is really about me coming to terms with the fact that I’m bipolar, and that doesn’t mean I’m insane,” front woman/guitarist Chelsey Louise, 27, says.
Fairy Bones' lead guitarist and backup vocalist Robert Ciuca is a pretty chill dude. But put him on stage with his band and he nothing short of a beast. He also really loves his dogs.
“F—k off, I’m tired of the bulls—t” was “VERY CATHARTIC” to sing at a camera, says Chelsey Louise.
No fun this morning on the show- Fairy Bones took over and we might have had a good time? You'll have to listen to the highlights to find out!
Marking this as the first time we’ve had one band on our show three times, Fairy Bones dropped by the Radio Phoenix studios with a fierce playlist and a few surprises.
Matthew Foos is the drummer for the legendary Phoenix band, Fairy Bones. Their new album, "0% Fun" as well as their previous ull length album, "Dramabot" are available everywhere now!
It’s unsettling, beautiful and powerful all at once.
