You may not have seen Fawn perform -- but if you're into Detroit rock & roll, chances are you've heard from their members before.

The Detroit musicians boast a pedigree that includes rotations in some of the Motor City's most beloved indie bands -- Thunderbirds Are Now!, Those Transatlantics, the Von Bondies and Child Bite, to name a few.

Their new collective effort, Fawn, has recently been signed to Quite Scientific Records, the Ann Arbor-based label that's helped artists like Chris Bathgate, Frontier Ruckus and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. make the leap from the local scene to national tours and attention.

Drawing from influences like the Breeders, Pixies and Jesus and Mary Chain, Fawn mixes bubblegum pop melodies with intricate, dissonant guitar sounds, resulting in sing-a-long indie rock that masks complicated instrumental compositions.

They'll play songs from their new album, Coastlines, Thursday night at The Loving Touch in Ferndale. The free show is 21+ and begins at 9 p.m.

Their new single, "Pixels," is a joyous little ditty that doubles as a meditation on a relationship's demise, through the metaphor of an image that, upon closer examination, is just a fragmented mess: "What happened to us / Pixels to dust / They cover us."
