Ahead of the release of their debut EP this month, Ascot outfit Febueder treat us to another bracing, off-kilter pop song in “Sloppiness Tank”.
Hollow guitar notes and glottal vocals at the start spark quick comparisons to Alt-J (the track sounds a lot like “Taro”), but there’s something different about Febueder. There’s more more groove and stomp to what we’ve heard so far of their music – more rock ‘n’ roll – even if neurotic coos and mathy guitars are found sweeping in and out.
It’s early to make big statements about the trio, but they’ve sure as hell got some fire in their bellies.
Soap Carve is out on 25 November on Tape Club Records.
