Uh, let’s get something clear right from the start, I like Fairy Bones, but as I’ve mentioned (in writing) before, their debut album left me wanting. And then, 0% Fun came through swinging like a fucking champ, turning all that potential into a demonstrative example of why artists must hone their craft continually. Stagnation is death and Fairy Bones showed they are more than alive and kicking. They are kicking ass.
““I’m Fine” ends our sophomore album, “0% Fun”, and I wrote it about my ongoing struggles with psychiatrists and healthcare in general and it covers the topic from an emotional standpoint. All my life it’s been some kind of a diagnosis and then some kind of a pill for it.
Their most recent record titled 0% Fun seems to be a misnomer, because lead vocalist Chelsey Louise didn’t stop her momentum for one second before psyching the crowd up with a powerful belted punk riff and equally enjoying the small stage-space with her bandmates.
Chelsey Louise is the fierce, fabulous vocalist (and guitarist) for the soon-to-be world famous band, Fairy Bones. She has a unique aesthetic that comes through in a multitude of ways, from the music she makes to her ever-changing hairstyles, so we were excited to hear what cool and ecletic tracks she thinks everyone should hear.
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.
Local alternative rock band Fairy Bones doesn’t pull any punches. Upbeat and rebellious, the group is full steam ahead with a brand new album 0% Fun. A mix of art rock, theatrical performance, and pop punk, the record showcases the band’s ability to write catchy ear-worms driven by the unapologetic spirit and vocals of Chelsey Louise.
The new album by Phoenix alternative hard rock band, Fairy Bones, may be called 0% Fun, but don’t be fooled by the title. In fact, the 9 songs on this record are upbeat, bouncy, and a very fun listen, full of catchy riffs and hooks guaranteed to stick in the listener’s head.
