I have been waiting for this EP since I saw them at the Blip Festival open mic. They didn’t have time to set up all of their equipment that night and ended up shouting the lyrics to their song but it didn’t matter, we were all into it.
Blink-182 era punk guitar riffs meet the Game Boy’s particular brand of electronic synthesis with some brilliant vocal work. The perfect EP for an afternoon of this frankly strange summer, kick back, crack open that tequila-soaked watermelon and blast this on you roof. The instrumental interludes between the EP’s tracks (the tracks marked with double slashes) are actually kind of a perfect way to transition between the energies of each track.
Moreso, Thomas, Rebecca and Ryan are part of what I see as a new wave of chip musicians that make me excited for the future, even in the wake of Blip Festival’s indefinite pause. I can’t wait to go to the show where Slime Girls, fuzzheads and Space Boyfriend inevitably rock the house to its foundation.
More: their previous project, The Clumsy Astronauts, never got a proper release, but has several tracks up on SoundCloud (of which, Giant’s Causeway has been played an EMBARRASSING number of times by my account).
UPDATE: After a brief hiatus, fuzzheads have re-released this EP with some sections replaced and with MUCH better mastering!
