Fuzz twee. It’s not a genre that necessarily fills the column inches of my blog contemporaries, perhaps because, unless I am mistaken, I have just made it up.
However it’s an apt description for the sound of Fanclub and this, their first release since January’s brilliant All the Same EP.
The aesthetic of Trespassing revolves around the ‘made for Sarah Records’ vocal stylistics of Leslie Crunkilton. Dulcet but not genuinely melancholy, sweet but carrying an essence of strength in their feminity, they are woven through the sort of semi distant fuzz pop that a band like Trying also make so special.
Trespassing is the ultimate sign that the debut brilliance of this Austin based three-piece was not a one-off and that the potential of this band justifies as many clicks of the various follow buttons as you can muster.
