Initially conceived as a bedroom recording outfit, Fantasy Rainbow’s departure from obscurity has been rapid. In May of 2011, a newly eighteen year old Oliver Catt recorded four songs with the help of friend Jonathan Coddington, a collaboration which led to a demo which would generate a large amount of buzz in the north east music scene.
Immediately after the release of this demo Fantasy Rainbow was picked up by Gateshead based DIY label Tiny Lights Recordings and over the next nine months would go on to release three full length releases in the shape of the ‘Teens’ EP, the ‘Healthy Lung, Dirty Lung’ cassette and the ‘No Hope. Not Ever’ EP. Soon; all three releases were receiving regular national airplay from the likes of XFM, BBC 6 Music & Amazing Radio which resulted in both of the first two releases selling out.
Now nineteen years old, and newly signed to Heist Or Hit Records., Oliver has recently recorded his debut album with Ed Spear at Sputnik Sound in Nashville, the studio owned by Grammy Award winning producer, Vance Powell (and sometimes haunt of one Jack White). The album is preceded by this first single on Heist Or Hit, released on limited edition 7” multi-coloured vinyl, produced and mixed by Martin Colclough (The Answering Machine).
