The Under the Radar-approved garage pop trio Have You Ever Seen the Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS? are back with a new single ‘Bambi Act’ which is the third cut from their second album ‘Jazzbelle 1984 / 1988’ due to be released on January 19th on VILD Recordings.
After the album release, the band heads out to play clubs and festivals in Europe and in the UK.
‘A man falls for another man. Man goes to a sex change operation, and now as a woman, charms her beloved and soon we can hear their wedding bells. Happiness proves to be false and she gets rejected. Shocked by this dreadful event, unhappy incidents occure and by wrong choices she ends up on the street turning tricks with her decaying body. What’s your interpretation?’, describes Ekku Lintunen, the songwriter and Casio wizard of the band.
After their debut album ‘Teenage Sweetheart’ was released in fall 2015 the Finnish garage pop trio has been praised in the international music media and they have gathered fans around the world. The band has claimed support from the likes of well known BBC Radio DJ’s Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Phil Taggart, Chris Hawkins and Tom Ravenscroft.
They have been featured on Consequence of Sound, Forbes, Drowned in Sounds, MTV Iggy, The Line of The Best Fit and Clash Magazine to name a few. Their concert highlights include performances at Roskilde Festival (DK), Flow Festival (FI), Pohoda (SK), Reeperbahn Festival (DE), The Great Escape (UK), Farm Fest (UK), Kendal Calling (UK), Eurosonic (NL) and Europavox (FR). Among festivals HYESTJFAVHS? played their first UK-tour in fall 2016 and have played club shows also in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Netherlands.
Consisting of Susanna Stemma-Sihvola (vocals & bass), Ekku Lintunen (keyboards & vocals) and Janne-Petteri Pitkälä (drums), Have You Ever Seen the Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS? replace the customary guitar with Casio keyboards and Eco-organs for delivering ear splitting riffs – an unusual move that has set them apart from their peers. Combine this approach with a name like HYESTJAFVHS? and it’s easy to see why the trashy punk trio have never struggled to grab people’s attention.
