Word arrives that the English brooding-rock trio Fight Fathers are planning an EP for April release.
With a darker space than their introduction the newest single to surface by Fight Fathers – Antares reflects on the isolationism of depression, which paradoxically draws a composition of closer unity within the sound.
Opening with a drum sequence phrased within squelching submerged pedal strings which has a naturally raw tribalism that immediately burrows the ensuing four and just over one sixth minutes of the track deep in to the cortex prior to guitar making its entrance soon joined intoxicatingly with strummed bass which gives the piece its echoing revolution, when the vocal joins the composition the listener is already wreathed in a dark countenance.
Although, as the track evolves, guitar is given space to add texturing the ever present drum pattern holds Antares in revolving darkness akin to the ensnaring embrace of the black-dog before everything fades in to silence other than the vocal evocation and acoustic strings reflecting of the all encompassing reality of the darkest moments of depression.
Yet somehow in conclusion the audience senses that despite the worst moments, there is the possibility of a faint flickering light that does have the the potential to become a bright sunbathed landscape.
The ambient-EDM project of Dan Meldrum – Prangman from England released the four track EP Chambers on the 15th.
Perhaps it is due to the fact that I wrote this article on Friday late morning on the 10th that the soft textures of sound – featuring vocals by Lyndsey Murray that this made sense, though given it is also Friday – albeit a week later that this is being published – it may also make perfect sense too as a means to wind down in to the weekend.
The Danish motorbilly quartet Grumpynators release the LP City Of Sin on the 24th of March.
