Brand new sonic impulses…
10 January 2019
After their SONGS FOR OUR MOTHERS CD in 2016, FAT WHITE FAMILY‘s key members turned to other projects (Lias Saoudi joined The Moonlandingz and Saul Adamczewski formed Insecure Men). Obviously they still had time for another FWF album too. Third longplayer SERFS UP! will be out in April. Today the band dropped first single, called
‘FEET’ and it’s a totally different animal compared to anything they did before.
A press statement claims that: “Where once they soundtracked grubby Britain of vape shops, Fray Bentos dinners and blackened tinfoil, a crepuscular comedown realm stalked by Shipman, Goebbels and Mark E Smith, Fat White Family now inhabit another cosmos entirely.”
‘Feet‘ is an extended karma-like chant. A ghostly, magnetic and kaleidoscopic vibe. You’ll hear strings, a sort of monk choir in the back, cinematic sound sequences and lots of other stuff you wouldn’t associate with the collective once branded ‘the most dangerous new band in Britain‘. Hallelujah, I can’t wait for the new record. But first this close encounter of the third kind…
