News Febueder

An Ascot-hailing force bursting out the tracks quicker than a Grand National winner.

Ascot, Berkshire is probably most known for its fancy racecourse and connections to the Royal Family - not instinctively the place to go then, if you’re in search for one of the UK’s most exciting new bands. And yet here they are.

Febueder - according to their Facebook page it’s pronounced ‘like Bermuda with an F, as in Bermuda Triangle’ - are a three piece consisting of Kieran Godfrey (Vocals, Guitar, Ukulele, Cornet, Percussion), Harry Summersgill (Bass) and Sam Keysell (Drums, Alesis Sampling) who create endearing, twitchy, genre-defying music which sounds like a combination of Alt-J’s unpredictable, off-kilter vocals, Foals’ intelligent, jittery percussion, Beaty Heart’s distant yelps and howl’s and Glass Animals’ sparse arrangements and enigmatic, eerie samples.

Latest release ‘Alligator’ (listen below) is an immersive, swampy venture through unnerving echoes and tinny percussion samples which ricochet off weird, nasal vocals, unexpected shouty bursts and erratic drum clacks. Needless to say, the rest of their ‘Soap Carv’ EP is something pretty special – a charming journey through self-aware obscurity. Evidently, there’s more to Ascot than just thoroughbred horses and fancy headwear.
