Fair and Kind: Bio

Fair and Kind is the dream pop collaboration of siblings Arthi Meera and Anand Subramanian, featuring exquisite vocals, sparkling guitars, and lavish melodies. Their debut album, A Little Past Twilight, was self-released in October 2008.

Anand and Arthi grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, singing along to The Smiths and The Sundays while shuffling between piano lessons and Hindustani vocal training. After a decade of playing solo and with different bands, they converged in Los Angeles in early 2007 to form Fair and Kind. Written in the tiny apartment they shared in Little Armenia, A Little Past Twilight, recorded by Jamie Seyberth (The Autumns, Hot Hot Heat), unites the diverse influences they shared growing up under one roof.

In the summer of 2009, Fair and Kind played a tour of four major U.S. cities (New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco). Now based in Chicago and the Bay Area, Fair and Kind are currently writing their second album, tentatively titled “Light Music Program.”
