EAT FAST don’t fuck about. Band photos? Pointless. Grand, showy statements? Waste of words. Nope - all they care about is shooting their sugary power-pop straight to the veins. On the quick-fire ‘Fenham Dreadlock’, the needle’s sharper than ever.
An all-too-short, teeth-rottingly sweet cut of fast and furious fuzz-rock, in two-and-a-half minutes flat the group lay all cards on the table. The title-track and opener of their incoming debut EP is as dizzying as they come - like spinning in circles after eighteen slush puppies, it’s an explosion of colour and noise, leaving you breathless and cross-eyed before you even know what’s hit.
Swirling guitar lines you can sing along to within seconds; screeches of feedback that hit like a gut-punch; scuzzy, buried-in-the-mix vocal hooks that lodge themselves in your cranium on their first outing. Get on board with this lot now - by summer’s end they’ll be echoing around every chaotic house party worth its weight in booze.
