I didn’t catch the London based bands first record when it arrived in 2011. Their latest, Stranger Things, was released in February this year – this is what brought them to my attention – and, at first listen has a more power pop sound than their debut. I prefer the latter, but if you want more pop in your fuzz than Stranger Things may be the one for you.
Ok, so the debut:
Lots of fuzzy guitars. Mid-tempo rock/pop tunes with some catchy melodies. Pretty strong song-writing for a young band. That said, my favorite tune is Rubber, which is a 7 minute slow drone of syrupy fuzz tone and a drawling vocal delivery that repeatedly asks, Should I give in?
