South London garage band THE FADES are set to release their new single on 1st April, ahead of a new album entitled ‘Ragnarock’ which will be available later in the year.
Obviously inspired by their own youthful pursuits, the song pokes spiky jibes towards Jonny who apparently doesn’t quite ‘get’ the cult of Meccano. (Personally, I’m on his side!) The almost robotic delivery mirrors the image of the metallic construction kit, while the sharp, punky, simplistic and child-like lyrics are redolent of cruel, school playground taunts.
With little hints of Glasgow’s We Are The Physics shining through, THE FADES could be onto something here.
(Released through Genepool Records on 1st April 2012)
