- Done Alright Fauna 3:06
Fauna is comprised of brothers Danny (Vocals and Guitar) and Adam (Guitar), Tom (Drums) and Charlie (Bass). In the blur that was the end of 2020/start of 2021, when the rest of the world stopped, the boys got busy – Completing their line up with a new bass player, recording new music and even brewing their own beer. Fast forward to today and the band are continuing to gain momentum after a string of live shows in 2021, including a slot at Liverpool Sound City festival.
Combining summery pop moments, old school rock and roll percussion and soaring choruses, Fauna’s unique sound has gained them attention from industry giants Radio X, BBC introducing and This Feeling. Fauna’s on-stage energy is infectious, this is a band that need to be heard live and loud. ‘Done Alright’ is accompanied by a music video directed by Matchbox Productions. The video is a glittering pastiche of a traditional working men’s club talent show with the boys staring as the eccentric contestants.
understand what we could do in our own lives to improve things. Creatively, this was our response. We wanted to join the conversation and encourage others to take a look at the world around them, learn to empathise and strive for a better and safer society. The track expresses the exasperation that we feel towards the world we’ve inherited. The generations before us have pillaged the planet for all its natural resources and built an unsustainable society. Yet those with the power to make change still sit inactive. Instead they make performative gestures, in an attempt to disguise the desperate attempts to line their pockets and cling on to whatever power they can.
The song is driven by the belief that everyone deserves to have agency over their own life. The thought of spending the rest of our days in a 9-5, clocking in day in and day out, whilst the elite hoard their wealth and kill the planet is enough to drive anyone to fantasize about Marxist revolution. But the reality is we’re all trapped in wage slavery. So the least we can do is be self aware, embrace how fucked we all are and write a song about it.
All things considered, we’re all doing alright, and it’s important to remind ourselves of that from time to time.
