Any bio that says “the band are a wild card and we’re living in wild times,” surely has my attention. The band is called Fond Han, and they are on the rise. They made their debut in 2014 with a split cassette EP with Mattress Financial. Now, they’re about to release they’re official debut album, Sham Cloud, soon, and we have the first single off of the album for you to check out.
The single is called “New Alright”. It’s hard to properly describe this track, it’s just so complex. The track gets more and more intense as it goes on, starting out soft and building up to a massive force. The track has a slight bummed out sound, while still being super energetic and full of life. That creates an interesting comparison in the piece that makes it so unique. I have never heard anything quite like it.
