The Macedonian alt-rock trio Фонија (Fonija) released the three track single Човек од стакло (Man Of Glass) on the 1st.
First featured back in 2013 Фонија is always a band that it is a pleasure to return to and their latest release Човек од стакло (available on bandcamp) doesn’t disappoint.
The title track and opener Човек од стакло is appropriately entitled as the brittle, though punchy track spears its way in to the ears and listeners finds themselves both punching the air in the frustrated contemplation of a society not fully reconciled from civil war of the last the Century and early this – whilst simultaneously twinkling toes on the dance-floor to the flighty beat as Фонија determinedly look for a better future, whilst not ignoring realities of the present.
The Macedonian alt-rock band Фонија (Fonija) regularly feature on the site.
From the LP …Bez Ime ( Unnamed), the sixth of the nine tracks Робот или дете (A Robot Or A Child). finds the trio casting their wary eye over societal manipulation.
The track begins with an enjoyable one string strumming before evolving into the energetic pressure waves of sound that are the signature of Фонија (Fonija). A surprisingly emotive vocal is given a rare run out as Робот или дете (A Robot Or A Child) allows the band to show-case one of their more melodic compositions.
We are now into the sections of the New Year Ninety where interest heats up both with readers and bands. I would just like to add, to each of the thousands of bands reviewed over the past four years your input to the world of music has been invaluable and thank you for taking the time to create your sounds. The various sites only exist due to my partner and co-founder of Indie InternationalJulie Norbury who always particularly enjoyed the New Year Ninety and as always the chart is dedicated to Julie.
