Every now and again, Fizzy Blood ease off a little on the creepiness and write something headed in the direction of soaring modern alt-rock. Latest single Summer Of Luv is one such example, not anywhere near as hippy as the title might suggest but still sort of laid-back (well at least for the first half) by comparison to their other recent releases. The song is available digitally through Killing Moon, and now the heatwave has eased off to ‘bearable’, can be the one to dance away your summer nights to.
As everyone knows, ‘guitar music’ is ‘dead’ so presumably in light of this, Fizzy Blood change tack at start a boyband instead – yeah, that’s as creepy as it sounds. Check out the ‘instructional’ video for Pawn.
Imagine… a doorway. Two sets of stairs. One goes up, you follow it towards music that sounds something like modern rock n roll, indie rock with a heavy groove. Then realise that simultaneously you’re also on the other stairs heading down, to a dimly lit basement room and the music in here is much darker, noisy in an eerie, almost post-punk way. The two songs you’re listening to are one and the same, subtly twisted together, mesmerising whilst sending shivers down your spine. Now hit ‘play’ on the new Fizzy Blood single below and tell me you don’t understand that imagery. Appearing a couple weeks ago, Pawn became available straight away with no warning, no fuss, just released onto an unsuspecting world.
