    Sunshine retro-pop FABS music really lives up to the expectation generated by the influence of The Beach Boys, their sound is perhaps best described as indie surf pop, with a mix of retro styles, every track is a hook-heavy gem that begs for a sing-along.

    A Scottish band with a South American lead singer. They formed in 2003 around singer/songwriter Fabiola Gatti born April 16th 1987, in Punta del Este, Uruguay. A keen surfer for 7 years, Fabiola describes surfing as a big part of her life and personality until she swapped her surfboard for a guitar and moved to Scotland at the tender age of 15 to pursue a musical career. FABS' music has the unique edge of teen life seen through a surfer's eyes with titles like Surfergirl', Lighthouse' and Sunrise'.

    After a few demos Fabs signed a recording contract with Scottish Indie label Over 18s Records and released their first single "Surfer Girl" on 7" vinyl in 2003. "Surfer Girl" was launched with a live performance at the Boardmasters surf festival in Newquay and along with their Beach Boy cover of "Surfin' Safari" has become a cult song for the surfing scene featuring at surf events around the world and receiving good reviews from NME, Record Collector and Shout among others where their sound has been liken to " The Blake Babies doing their best Dressy Bessy impression". Record Collector quotes "Fabs music bristles with passion, energy and most importantly, originality" Their fans, though, embrace the music for its simple melodies, harmonies and easy-going compositions.

    Lead singer Fabiola is mostly admired for her songwriting skills - not only because she writes Fabs indie-surf songs in English but also salsa-rumba songs in Spanish for her side project The Chi Chis, which has become very popular in the Latin music scene.

    FABS are now leading the Indie Scottish music scene and have been featured in The Daily Mail, The Sun , The Daily Star and front page of The Press and Journal among others.

    FABS recorded their single "So Jealous Boy" at Dougie MacLean's studio in Dunkeld and released it in Nov 2005. "So Jealous Boy" is cutting-edge innovative power-pop featuring a radio-ready chorus full of Beach Boys style harmonies using a strikingly simple musical arrangement of violin, guitar and 70's synths with a funky bassline. B-side "Where's Surfergirl?" is a cool club mix of Fabs first single "Surfer Girl". Produced by and featuring London's skinny brown dog Len Lewis, it perfectly captures Fabs surf vibe along with tech house grooves.

    In July 2006 Fabiola Gatti released "Lighthouse" on iTunes. A classic ballad, with a sweet and melodic tune featuring brilliant acoustic guitar licks and simple lyrics that you will find yourself listening to over and over again. On nov 20th 2006 Fabs re-release "Sunrise" a simple and catchy indie rock ballad. Fabiola's uniquely alluring little-girl singing voice evokes a feeling of a day at the beach complete with Beehive hairdo's, polka dot bikinis and the Big Kahuna dominating the waves.

    FABS are currently finishing the recording of their debut album -expected to be released in early 2007- it's been tipped to be the most refreshing new album in quite a long while and is guaranteed to push Fabs into the mainstream.
