Polaroid Fame

Polaroid Fame

Let me introduce you to Byron Bay’s Polaroid Fame, a band I often think of as the quiet achievers. Formerly known as The Frankie Band, Polaroid Fame have gone from strength to strength since forming in 2005, even Pete Murray’s a fan.

Polaroid Fame consists of Frankie Kimpton on guitar and vocals, Mitch Hill on bass, Damian Watts on lead guitar and Zoe Kimpton on keys/synth. In 2007 the band released an EP titled Another Place To Live and with tracks like Closure and Save Me From Me, I quickly became a fan of this indie pop/rock band.  Following the EP was the single Facing Extinction, it gained high rotation on Triple J with its catchy lyrics yet may just be a glimpse of the bands talent. Now, in 2009 with an album in the pipeline (said to be released later this year) Polaroid Fame have released a new single We Live Your Life which can be downloaded for free from here. If it’s a taste of what’s to come with the new album, I excitedly await its release.

Chosen as part of the council’s support of local Byron bands, Polaroid Fame will play Splendour in the Grass this weekend,  it seems these quiet achievers are starting to get some of the spotlight.

  1. “Polaroid Fame are playing Splendour in the Grass this weekend, it seems these quiet achievers are starting to get some of the spotlight”

    Do note that they only scored a spot at splendour because the festival HAS to have some byron region bands playing. That’s the rule the council gave them to hold the festival.

  2. The statement isn’t incorrect at all.

    Despite what you said. Polaroid Fame (the quiet achievers), still get that spotlight even if it is for the reason you have stated.
