That’s how Fang Island, whose eponymous second album came out a few weeks ago, describe their sound, and it’s pretty apt. In fact, half the fun of listening to Fang Island is coming up with ways to describe them to other people. They’re what Explosions in the Sky would sound like if they listened to more ABBA. Their song ‘Daisy’ is like Andrew W.K.’s “She Is Beautiful”, but not terrible. This is the music Fleet Foxes would be making if they grew up in Santa Barbara and not Seattle. This, my friends, is what it’s like to be Richard Simmons.
A note: the song is fantastic; the video is strange and creepy. You’ve been warned.
