Fiel Garvie is one of the United Kingdom's most enigmatic and innovative pop music ensembles. After a previous collaboration in Passing Clouds, Anne and Adam formed Fiel Garvie in 1996, along with Greg and Jude. Emma joined up in 2002. During the past seven years The Garv has released five singles, an EP, and two full-length albums.
Their 1997 For What I Love single garnered Melody Maker's Single Of The Week honors, described as "music you could drown in" with Anne's vocals portrayed as a "headburst of unchecked emotion." Time Out heralded Fiel Garvie's fourth single, Difference of Me, as "a band taking a roundabout route to somewhere wonderful."
Their debut album, ¡Vuka Vuka! includes four songs from three of the band's previous singles, plus seven new tracks (the title translates to "Wake Up! Wake up!" from Mbele, a Zimbabwean dialect; it is also slang for natural viagra). Critics from across the continent alternately marvelled at the aggressive poetic content as well as the band's trademark eye-catching art design (Les Inrocks and Compact in France, Ruta 66 in Spain, and Rockerilla in Italy among others).
The band has performed with a variety of acts including: Magoo, Belly, Black Box Recorder, Muse, Deus, and The Telescopes.
