Canadian quintet Fake Shape glide between jazz-addled Indie to ambient electronica in one swift movement.
NEW MUSIC | WORDS BY KARL JOHNSON
Synthesizers caught between dull and fizzing provide the perfect backdrop to the dancing vocal on ‘It’s Easy’, and what a vocal range it is. The bass guitar rumbles and the drums spark with a jazz influence that leaves the rhythm feeling beautifully off-kilter. Guitars elegantly follow suit, as the track adds layer upon layer to it’s previously spacious feeling, every second more anxiety-inducing.
The riffs get meatier, the electronic elements build into mind-melting territory with backing vocals that wouldn’t be out of place on an early Daft Punk record. Strange? Not at all, these five digits fit like a new glove.
