Fight Fathers - Antares - Single Review

Fight Fathers

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.

Antares is available on Amazon.*

Walk By Sea

Walk By Sea

Within the past twenty-four hours the first track from the album – Moratorium – surfaced.

Having had the opportunity to wander through their previous two EPs, Moratorium marks a shift in parameters for Walk By Sea. Whilst still retaining their roots in alternative folk the quartet have added more depth and resonance to their material affording the output a darker over-coat with which to wrap the listener, while adding elements of maths-rock to the delivery.

For those who already know Walk By Sea, in Moratorium, they will discover ideas familiar to their last release, As The Night, back in 2015. For those new to their music they will find themselves met by a group of musicians who have used their experiences well, delivering highly textured music in which to tarry and dwell.
