“We can’t believe we managed to pull this off, honestly. We were added to Kraken Fest in Orlando, FL just a week before the show and our goal was to make the most of it, so we figured why not make a live music video of our set and ask Dan to come up and sing his part?’” the band shares. “With such short notice we didn’t expect much, but to our surprise he reached back out saying he was about it! And now this will go down in history as the greatest music video FELICITY will ever have.”
From their earliest days, FELICITY have seen success up close.
Just months after forming in 2013, the Orlando-based alt-rock newcomers were invited to perform at their hometown’s stop on the 2014 Vans Warped Tour – their fourth show ever. Shortly thereafter, a slot at The Big Orlando Festival alongside Fall Out Boy and Weezer, as well as songs placed everywhere from Fox Sports to MTV’s The Challenge, cemented that they were onto something big.
FELICITY began, like many acts in the internet age, as a Craigslist connection, with Fagiolino and guitarist Andrew Rapier bonding over their love of post-hardcore firestarters Finch. For years, Fagiolino had been a staple in the Orlando cover band scene, paying tribute to acts from the ’90s and early 2000s, but deep down the singer had a strong pull for something more.
Together with his bandmates (Rapier, guitarist Cory Nicholas, and bassist Michael Alosa), FELICITY are well on their way to carving out their own world. Their deliriously dextrous sound spans genres – often in the same song – as the group shapeshift from hard-charged, detuned metal to ebullient pop-punk. On their debut full-length, Dear Universe, FELICITY take those skills and sharpen them even more, kicking down the guardrails to expand their sound further than many bands in their scene are willing to venture.
Recorded over a 30-day span with genre super-producer Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Neck Deep, Wage War), the Adventure Cat Records-released album follows a trio of EPs – 2019’s Old Habits, 2016’s Brace Yourself!, and 2015’s Felicity – and finds the band fearlessly experimenting with new sounds and structures that divert from their past to chart their future.
“We approached this record as songwriters for the first time,” Nicholas explains. “We want to be a band that can fit in everywhere and make a variety of different songs that can resonate with all kinds of people.”
The result is a group who sound as confident unleashing caustic, swerving breakdowns as they do baring their unabashed pop tendencies and unfolding more ethereal soundscapes.
Blocking out the noise has gotten FELICITY this far, from headlining their hometown House of Blues and appearing at South Florida’s Fort Rock Festival to setting sail on the Warped Rewind At Sea cruise alongside legends like Good Charlotte and The Starting Line. Along the way, fans around the world have flocked to their earn-it-yourself authenticity and captivating sound – relationships the band are excited to build through a variety of channels.
