“Elastic Waistband” is the second single from Fanny Lumsden's critically acclaimed, #1 ARIA Country chart album, ‘Real Class Act’. It follows the hugely successful lead single, “Roll On” which has spent over five months in the Top 10 of The Music Network Country Airplay chart - and is currently#10 on that chart, the song also reached #1 on the Country Music Channel video chart.
"This song is a celebration of the mundane things, that over time you learn to appreciate as precious. We loved working on this song and building up contrast of its poppy - aspirational feel with the fact that the songs theme is celebrating the mundane desire for 'elastic waistbands and sitting on the couch'.
'Real Class Act’ has garnered praise from critics and fans alike with the crowd-funded, self-released album being nominated for three Golden Guitar Awards (Alt Country Album of the Year, Female Artist of the Year and Heritage Song of the Year for ‘Roll On’) and building on the success of debut album “Small Town Big Shot” which saw Fanny take home the Golden Guitar Award for “New Talent of the Year” and CMC Award for “Best New Australian Artist” in 2017 and receive an ARIA Award nomination for Country Album of the Year in 2016.
