julia deans, andrew bain, steve wells, and simon braxton have been fur patrol for 7 years, always showing live that they are certainly one of wellingtons better musical exports. through the bands history they have shown a diverse range from the sultry “why” to melodic pop tunes like “lydia” to the dirty loud rocking “get along”. in 1998 the band recorded an ep, entitled starlifter, which was voted best independant release at the b-net awards in 1999. frontwoman for the band, julia also picked up fox of the year. as well as recieving praise from new zealand student radio they caught the attention of triple j in australia and university radio in canada.
their debut album “pet”, went platinum three months after release and contained the number one single, lydia, for which they have become most widely known.
