The head of music for Bafana FM Digital Africa said that he loved the new single ‘Gorgeous Girl’ from ‘Hello Fiasco’ and has put it on the A-List playlist.

“Gorgeous Girl” is a radiant and energetic track that captures the essence of Hello Fiasco’s signature style. The song’s melodic sensibility and rocking instrumentation come together in perfect harmony, resulting in a sonic masterpiece that will have you singing, dancing, and feeling uplifted. “Gorgeous Girl” is the 2nd single from the band’s debut album “Find The Shoreline.” and has already earned 600,000 streams.

Listen out for it on the daily playlist + as a special POWERPLAY at 4 PM SA time every day for a month or more.

In the years leading up to 2021, former members of The Mailman’s Children joined forces with other Canadian artists to record 23 original songs. Although Hello Fiasco™ is principally Canadian, the band is actually considered Canadian-American or “North American” because their frontman Eric LaBossiere (born Canadian) lives in Helena, Montana (USA). The rest of the band, including Joel Couture (bass), Joel Perreault (lead guitars/backing vocals), Ivan Burke (drums/backing vocals), and Guy Abraham (keys/Ableton/backing vocals), all live in the Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada region.

At the top of 2021, the newly formed 5-piece band surfaced as Hello Fiasco. The band’s debut album “Find The Shoreline” has earned 4,500,000 streams including 1,700,000 unique listeners on Spotify, being placed on over 12,000 Spotify playlists, and achieving several top 30s at US College radio.

​The band’s debut album “Find The Shoreline” was co-produced by frontman Eric LaBossiere and award-winning Canadian producer John Paul Peters (Propagandhi, Arkells, Comeback Kid, Faouzia, Royal Canoe, Cancer Bats, The Bros. Landreth and Begonia). *Peters recently won both Audio Engineering and Producer of the Year awards at the Western Canadian Music Awards. Notably, the album was mastered by American Grammy-winning engineer Randy Merrill of Sterling Sound (Imagine Dragons, Cage The Elephant, Muse, Maroon 5, Paul McCartney, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Adele and Lady Gaga). 

​With lyrics that are sometimes cheeky and sarcastic, the band’s songs are often meaningful and deep. Backed by the power and vulnerability of LaBossiere’s stylish voice, which is reminiscent of British Pop Rock like Bowie but also holding the American vibe of Brenden Urie (Panic! at the Disco) and Brandon Flowers (The Killers), the band’s driving rhythm section is wrapped up in a tapestry of majestic electric guitar tones, catchy piano melodies, synth landscapes and a barrage of powerful harmonies that all come together to make this North American but Canadian-heavy band a force to reckon with.

They might be Pop Rock, but Hello Fiasco is definitely more than the standard fare of rock instrumentation and same old song writing we have all gotten used to. Hello Fiasco has been compared to Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand and David Bowie, though listeners have also said that HF definitely has a sound and strength of their own. This only makes sense since the band prides itself on coming from the side of Pop Rock where the quality of lyrics, music and originality all still stand for something.

Over the last months, the band has also done over 15 radio, podcast or published interviews and had over 80 articles published about them. They did all of this under their own indie label: The Mailman’s Children Inc, which was aptly named after the band that 3 of 5 Hello Fiasco members used to be a part of. HF has also built out their social media brand to 25,000 Tiktok Followers, 11,000 Facebook followers and 4,500 Instagram followers in their first 2 years. Things are moving for Hello Fiasco.

HF’s first performances include a sold-out headlining show at Canada’s renowned Festival du Voyageur, as well as an opening slot for The Watchmen, I Mother Earth and Bif Naked at Winnipeg’s Burt Block Party. The band is currently in the process of scheduling its first North American tour dates for 2023 and 2024, with a few shows already scheduled for Canada.
