Fawns Of Love

Fawns of Love is singer Jenny Andreotti and multi-instrumentalist Joseph Andreotti. Their new album titled Innocence of Protection (Kingfisher Bluez, Sunday Records) was written and recorded in the duo’s studio using Moog synthesizers and Eastwood Guitars. The album centers on the themes of innocence, frailty, and vulnerability. When explaining the themes of the album Jenny says, “I think when we are children we use make believe as a creative outlet, but as we get older we use daydreaming as a tool of protection when we feel overwhelmed and as a way to have control over something. For this album I liked the idea of recreating what it feels like to float in and out of daydreaming and reality.” While writing the songs both Jenny and Joseph were inspired by Cocteau Twins, Yukihiro Takahashi, Dali’s Car, and New Order.
The album artwork and layout was created by Paul West at Form (Cocteau Twins, Depeche Mode) and the photography by Spiros Politis (Cocteau Twins, Nick Cave). The album is being released on vinyl by Kingfisher Bluez and on compact disc by Sunday Records. The compact disc includes bonus tracks that include a remix by Kid Ginseng (Tom Tom Club, Kraftjerkz). According to Post-Punk.com, Innocence of Protection “is both a mesmerizing whirl and a danceable dream, encapsulating the best ethereal pop sounds of the 80s.
Since the release of their critically acclaimed 2019 LP Permanent, which according to LA Weekly, “…creates gorgeous swathes of moody, melancholic music,” Bakersfield post-punk duo Fawns of Love released Someday (Robin Guthrie Version) b/w Never Sing For Joy 7” (Kingfisher Bluez) and a second KXLU Part Time Punks radio session titled, Part Time Punks Session: Permanent Revisited 12” EP (Obeah Records) in 2020. With both releases the wife and husband duo further evolved their post-punk ethos using Cocteau Twins inspired reverb drenched vocals along with New Order inspired guitar leads and sequences. “Someday (Robin Guthrie Version)” was recorded and mixed by Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins, who created his own version of the track that originally appeared on the previously released Permanent LP (Test Pattern). Guthrie created an ethereal and earnest mood to his version of “Someday” by contributing multiple lush guitar tracks, bass guitar, keys, and drums which Grimy Goods wrote “delivers twice as much ethereal wonder as the original.”
