Words: Saam Das
I'm generally a tad sceptical about crowdfunding but when riotous synth poppers Fight Like Apes opted for the method to fund their forthcoming third album, I threw my money at the computer. I got emailed a brief update the other day about the record but wasn't expecting to hear a track from it so soon. Have a listen to the topsy turvy brilliance of 'Carousel' below.
'Carousel' may start off relatively quietly before consolidating its melodrama, but the true joy comes when it kicks into turbo as the vibrant synth and vocal melodies come more and more into play. The album is set to be preceded by an EP on Alcopop Records, and could well feature 'Pretty Keen On Centerfolds', which popped up earlier in the year.
