FancyNormal is a female-fronted synth-pop duo fashioned during the Melbourne COVID lockdown.
Vocalist Noni moved to Australia from Indonesia when she was 10 years old unable to speak any English, except the lyrics from Britney Spears’ album “…Baby One More Time”.
For her, Ultra Passion represents a melodic release of raw energy and soul inspired by dysfunctional young love. Jules blends a nostalgic mix of warm synth and big tom fills into this colourful expression of youthful hope and heartbreak.
Swelling towards the climactic release of EP “Starters & Appetizers” due for release Jan 2021, FancyNormal is a beam of glossy 80s light that channels Carly Rae Jepsen vibes & Whitney Houston soul. Joel Dowling (Samsaruh, Matt Corby, Erika Ascenzo) lends his mixing talent to complete a tune that is sure to start a socially distanced party in your apartment.
Noni is a 5″2′ bliss ball of Chihuahua power who will take you on a vocal rollercoaster that recounts her first relationship. Musician/producer Jules teams up with Noni after finding himself overcome with melancholic emotion during lockdown.
Together as FancyNormal, they create an ultra-passionate fusion of influences like Ralph, MGMT, and The Naked and Famous. The new normal is looking a little fancier as Noni & Jules crank up the colour saturation in a year that’s been washed out and grey.
