Fish Tank - Henry
UK MATH POP #@RU(QR#PFJ FA!!! ALL OVER THE FUC......
Excuse my outburst fellows and fellows ettes, in keeping up with my obvious love for UK bred math rock.indie pop hybrid beasts (Tangled Hair, Colour, Pharoahs so on and so forth) is Fish Tank. This three piece have dropped on us an EP that eats like a meal or an LP (your choice). Giant sized rock outs, wonderful breakdowns, sing alongs, awesome vox, tapping, keyboards, horns? check. These boys are not afraid to jam heavy on a great chorus or conversely rip through a couple time signatures with some guitar acrobatics. Make no mistake though this stuff will get caught in your dome. It seems as though a full length is to come rather soon and I can't help but be on my chair about it. Criminal that they aren't more talked up because they are a sight better than a lot of this "sensitive math with strong guitars".
Pro-tip: Hand claps in a song = + 5 to crushing brilliance
