The English rock’n’roll trio Fick As Fieves are set to release the single English Weather on the 22nd.
Fick As Fieves
You know that moment when you reach in to your wardrobe and catch site of your favourite piece of clothing and think – I don’t care what I am meant to be doing today – I am wearing this come what may?
The unpretentious sounds of Fick As Fieves always brings a delighted smile and English Weather is no exception. I feel like a joyful chipmunk discovering a hidden stash of nutrition – as I am allowed to share this with you prior to Friday.
Snaffle up the volume and clear some dance-floor – oh and a lasso-rope to swirl above the head would be handy too as, like a cowfolk riding a bucking bronco dressed in leather chaps, there is no dance-move that is too excessive as the bluesy guitar bleeds through the ears with the listener delightedly aiming to keep balance with their own frantic body sway.
If you are not whooping with delight, breathless and sweating profusely at the end of English Weather – you are either not listening through a full speaker system or are reading the wrong music review site.
The English newwave trio Fick As Fieves released the single Insomnia on the 21st.

Prior to hitting play, as those who are of longer stay will also recall, there is little point unless your 14 hole DMs are tied and there is room to dance to the latest reveal.
On this occasion, once again the sprung drum kit snaps through the room – though in Insomnia the bass and guitar are given front-line billing too resulting in a ska derived number and the listener finds themselves reverting from pogo to skanking footstep whilst the precise vocal trips, like a surgeons knife, through the phrases.
Since Fick As Fieves returned from their break the world has undoubtedly become a better place and all that is next required is an LP to press once and play in long-form and upon which those who do suffer from Insomnia will take great pleasure as the night passes in fervoured dance-step.
The English angst-indie trio Fick As Fieves are planning to reveal a new track on the 28th.

Within the past few minutes – in advance – a video for Label Us.
Currently working on plenty of new material after a hiatus with university study and lives not quite matching – in 2017 Fick As Fieves are looking set fair.
Crank up the volume and kick the speakers to clear out any dust, just to make sure, make yourself space to dance, only then, allow Label Us in the room – as drumsticks, that you feel are necessarily part of a juggling act, such does the tautness of skin to rim – mesmerise.
However there is more than just Richard on drums, as bass and guitar slink through the speakers with generous courtesy, allowing the swarming echoed vocal to smear through the ears. Enabling Fick As Fieves to deliver a track, though less than two and a half minutes in length, that has much to discover with their perspectives of the world around where abandoned hopes which don’t meet others expectations lay tattered by the roadside, with palpable sense of regret, in a song that raises an siren call that nonconformity far from being an affliction is a triumphant space of valediction.
I look forward to discovering more of the new lease of life for the trio.
