FS1E - Words and Deeds (*A REVIEW*)
Quirky, strange and charming, and totally out there; The genre defying FS1E, a trio of hardened musicians from North Herts. have crafted and created a unique sound of their own, a blend of Reggae, Post Punk, Indie and, Prog Rock Words and Deeds, their not so difficult second album is a very British album, the sound and sentiments couldn't come from anywhere else. Twelve bitter sweet symphonies telling tales of everyday people and their lives, loves, losses and fears; the good, bad and the ugly. It's an emotional road trip of a listen that takes a journey over the bumps and potholes of life at a time of social and political upheaval in our not so great, green and pleasant lands. Sublime, slow burning and absorbing soulful stuff. Tempos change as tunes chug, chop, swing and sway long. Guitars scratch, strum and jangle, Vocal harmonies mix with Dark rhythms, Dub grooves and jaunty up tempo folk like jigs. These are catchy epic songs of jazzy prog psychedelic proportions, both laid back, lively and at times uneasy easy listening. Available now to stream on Spotify.
