I’m a little bit late to the party as this track is already out but I like it so I’m going to bring you a few thoughts anyway.
Hailing from Tamworth but now based in Birmingham Everybody Looks Famous are Lex (Vocals) Tom (Guitar, vocals, synth) Joe (Guitar, vocals) Phil (Drums) and Grace (Keys, synth).
Fiction is the band’s brand new single truth be told it’s pretty damn awesome. The band themselves describe the track as “a whole new step for us. It’s bigger, grittier and more of a raw sounding track than anything we have released before” and it’s pretty hard to argue against that. Sound-wise the guys aren’t a million miles away from Altered Sky although they do maybe have a slightly grittier edge, at least on this evidence.
The real selling point for this tune though is definitely the chorus. It takes what is already a good track and just elevates on to another level. It’s got that great mix of being catchy and radio friendly while packing enough of a punch to make me think that it would sound huge live. I like how crisp and clean the vocals are and as I mentioned the instrumentation packs a great punch. All round it’s just a really good pop/rock track, there honestly isn’t anything to dislike about it.
The band are currently on tour with the aforementioned Altered Sky and you can catch them at the following dates.
27th – Cheltenham The 2 Pigs
28th – Cardiff Undertone
29th – Birmingham The Rainbow
30th – Glasgow G2
