Betty Pulls A Fast One – Swing Like Summer – Single Review

The English melancholic-wave duo Betty Pulls A Fast One recently revealed their latest track.

Betty Pulls A Fast One - Swing Like Summer

Betty Pulls A Fast One – Swing Like Summer

Frequently featured since the middle of last year Betty Pulls A Fast One always return to the table with a new idea.

In Swing Like Summer – one is minded of the sadness of Strange Fruit by Billie Holiday from 1939. Although there is approaching an eighty year time gap – though Billie Holiday was more explicit in lyric in Swing Like Summer that same sentiment of societal deconstruction is evident in the pianoforte led ballad that lays wrapped in the ears long after the notes have faded in to silence.

Again apologies to you for the delay in getting to this, as it has been hanging around in my email inbox for a few weeks.

Pretty Pistol fire out of the speakers with a sound that immediately has the listener pogoing as the pressured pulsing drum pummels the ears around which a grungy bass and guitar pile on the punches, overarching it all is a superb vocal that is able to draw out the underlaying frustrations with its ranging invective.

A band I am sure I will be coming back to frequently and by way of introduction the last of the four tracks on the EP – Come On.

Fragile Creatures – The Meaning Of Life – Single Review

The English alt-rock quintet Fragile Creatures are planning on diving in to the studio for a second LP reveal later in the year.

Fragile Creatures - The Meaning Of Life

Fragile Creatures

Unafraid to test new ideas – word arrives that the new album will be digging in to a slightly different tool-box – The Meaning Of Life – being a sample. On each occasion they have featured Fragile Creatures have compacted their sound and taken coil to tauter spring.

Akin to bouncing on a gymnasium trampoline rather than a back garden model – The Meaning Of Life sharply recoils each lull, which previously squatted to heels prior to rebounding, firing the straight legged bounce to higher reach, resultingly, more expansive in display yet tighter in recoil.

Francobollo

Francobollo are unafraid to test themselves or the listener with their packed and ever different soundscapes, which may be progressive, psychedelic, angular or in the case of Worried Times from the forthcoming album, dance-floor. Though rest assured whatever they deliver is played with panache, style and ability with the knack of capturing and holding attention.
