The first track to surface from the album, Pawnshop, which is the follow-up to their 2016 eponymous début LP finds Daphne And The Fuzz with the familiarity of retrospective influences, though this time around steeped in the vitals of ’70s disco-soul.
With more expansive and sombre composition than music previously featured – a live version of Journey To Mars – which is the penultimate of the ten tracks on their eponymous LP (available on bandcamp).
The Greek summer-rock quintet Daphne And The Fuzz will be releasing their eponymous début LP on the 18th.
Daphne And The Fuzz
As I often mention music is of a moment.
From the ten track album (available via Inner Ear Records on bandcamp) the opener Burn Down Your House.
Daphne And The Fuzz are able to cut across the calamities which have beset Greece for many a year and are still being felt, in a world which prefers to consider refugees fleeing privation and loss of life as someone else’s problem and a good reason to further turn back on a citadel of civilisation, who despite their own difficulties seek out a helping hand to those in need with diaphanous reaching arms.
Were I fleeing from Afghanistan, Eritrea, Syria or elsewhere I would feel as I heard Burn Down Your House a welcoming beacon to which to head the sinking raft.
Much of the music I feature from Greece, quite correctly, espouses of the inner turmoil of bureaucratic battalions, it is of equal prescience to find a band looking outward to others extending supporting contemplative, wrapped in bitter contemplative of the currency of their fellow populace.
