When I first moved back to Swansea, Bandicoot were the first band I saw live who seemed to have something extra special about them.
However, their sound seemed just a semitone too nice.
This dubious fault is firmly and funkily corrected on raucous new single Fuzzy, out next week on Libertino Records.
Bandicoot’s description of their track perfectly incapsulates its timeless, joyful energy … “FUZZY is a deranged attempt at seduction which draws on 70s ‘Top of the Pops’, glam rock and memories of misguided adolescence.”
Following hot on the heels of the bands successful debut single on Libertino ‘Dark Too Long’, FUZZY shares DTL infatuation with the decade where you cycled to catch your dreams on your trusted ‘chopper bike’ and ‘glittered teenage anthems filled the airwaves as much as your imagination’.
With FUZZY Bandicoot are Gene Vincent’s lustful, greasy-haired, leather-jacketed rebellion channelled through Bolan and the New York Dolls infectious boogie. As they sing FUZZY is their Vitamin C, now let FUZZY be yours!
According to Bandicoot “FUZZY is a strutting statement of intent, fizzing with energy, rolling relentlessly on. It captures the energy that we’re bursting with, cooped up in our homes, awaiting the return to the stage. And a triumphant, ferocious return it will be”
Not too nice at all.
Fuzzingly filthy, a perfect statement of intent.
Watch out for new of something further from Bandicoot guitarist Tom on this Wednesday, 6pm…
