Following the release of their debut single ‘Before The Trend Set In’ last year, UK band The Fatherline have announced that their follow up single, ‘This Work Is A Drug’, is coming this Friday (May 1st).
A statement of intent from one of the UK’s most intriguing up and coming acts, ‘This Work Is A Drug’ is a departure from the vibe of the debut single, laying out their genre-defying versatility, fronted by the soaring vocals of multi-instrumentalist, Tim Prottey-Jones. It’s a step in a more alternative direction, whilst still maintaining the melodic intricacy and atmosphere that the debut single established.
Beginning with a delicate piano-led introduction, setting the theme with “this work is a drug, I can’t get enough”, the single gradually builds into an anthemic chorus which was simply made for the band’s live shows. It’s the kind of musical showcase you would expect from a bunch of highly-experienced, talented musicians.
Experimental, ambitious, brave… call it what you will. It’s exciting to see a new band offering something totally different and pushing the boundaries; you should definitely be keeping an eye on these guys in the coming months.
