Swansea rockers Bandicoot are back with a bang, with their third single ‘Fuzzy’ making us desperate to be back at a gig again. The track is short and sweet — in just two minutes and 13 seconds, I’ve found my new favourite band and have already queued up their other two singles (which are, for the record, just as pleasing as this new tune).
‘Fuzzy’ hits you with energy as soon as it starts, slapping you in the face and forcing you to take notice. With fast paced riffs in a 70s-meets-Tame-Impala’s-’Elephant’ kind of way, Bandicoot know how to reel you in.
Merging instrumentals with lead singer Rhys Underdown’s strong vocals, Bandicoot manage to make the ’70s relevant again, and the track wouldn’t be out of place if it was blaring out live in a sweaty, crowded room. ‘Fuzzy’ shows off the band’s potential to pull in a big crowd and, going off the little we’ve seen of their discography this far, this is likely to happen.
According to the band: “‘Fuzzy’ is a strutting statement of intent, fizzing with energy, rolling relentlessly on. It captures the energy that we’re bursting with, cooped up in our homes, awaiting the return to the stage. And a triumphant, ferocious return it will be”.
The single is out now via Libertino Records, so grab your leather jacket, throw on your flares and have a listen.
