Hailing from Glasgow, The Calm Fiasco are a dreamy indie quartet who are no strangers to releasing encapsulating feel-good singles. With a highly successful EP, ‘The Fear’, released earlier this year, they received high praise from fans and critics alike – paving the way for a stellar year. Now with the release of their new single ‘Lemonade’ and their biggest show to date just a couple of days away (The Art School – November 18th) they have more than proved their place as one of next years ones to watch.
Warm melodies introduce us to rich melodious vocals with a slightly grittier edge draped over a rhythmic continuous drum beat – creating an upbeat air to the single. An underlying fuzzy bass-line creates a hazed edge to ‘Lemonade’ that wraps you up in its three and a half minute duration.
Dropping to softer vocals, a dynamic synth refrain kicks in adding further depth and giving a positively feel-good glow – while harmonious vocals in the chorus breezily build an underlying tenacious energy, driving the track forward into its final minute.
A distorted guitar riff precedes a dropout to distant instrumentation and a building power of rolling rhythms. A final run through of the chorus sees the track fading out, leaving you with a want for more and a need to hit repeat. With sweetly infectious hooks and warm hazy melodies, ‘Lemonade’ should be your new favourite track.
