After successfully releasing their debut album ‘Teenage Sweetheart’, Have You Ever Seen the Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS? return with a new single ‘Magic Swimming Pants’. Out on VILD Recordings on July 28th.
‘Magic Swimming Pants’ is somewhat typical HYESTJFAVHS?-tune with its raw sound, earworm-melodies and surreal lyrics. “An Anthem of late summer for the freeminded.”, describes Ekku Lintunen, the Casio wizard of the band.
Along the release Have You Ever Seen the Jane Aerobic VHS? head over to the UK for three festival shows. On the last weekend of July the band is playing Leopallooza, Farmfest and Kendal Calling.
After their debut album release 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 DJ’s Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart, Chris Hawkins and Tom Racenscroft. 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), Eurosonic (NL) and Europavox (FR). Among bigger festivals HYESTJFAVHS? played their first UK-tour in fall 2016.
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? is a strange bird in the Finnish rock scene not only because of it’s long name, but also because the band doesn’t have a guitar player. Instead melodies and distorted sound walls are created by good old Casio and Eco-organs. Packed with 60’s girl group/soul-melodies, bubble gum punk riffs and pounding drums, which will make your eardrums bleed, this newcomer is truly something to get to know.
