Formed in 2004, Fuzzy Lights create haunted, visceral music that pulls and tugs at its moorings. As well as touring the UK as guests of Young God Record's Mi & L'au, they have shared the stage with Jack Rose, Vetiver and MV&EE amongst others. Hard to pigeonhole as they combine both folk purity and psychedelic noise with echoes of more traditional blues/ Americana, their reverb-soaked, semiimprovised music is now collected on their debut album 'A Distant Voice'. Fans of Dirty Three, Grails, Neil Young and Molasses will find much to love here. Perfectly recorded direct to tape in the Fuzzy house, 'A Distant Voice' is a slowly surging storm of a record. Mournful, pure violin lines and intertwining golden guitars phase into clamour and discord, blissful drones torn apart by screes of guitar violence and thundering percussion. Vocals appear through the haze only occasionally but when they do they serve to heighten the tension and not to provide a simple narrative. 'Colour Of The Sun' (track 5) is typical of this reverse technique - a slow western ballad featuring raw, dusty guitars evocative of Neil Young's electrified 'Weld' album. With 'A Distant Voice', Fuzzy Lights have created a beautiful yet crooked canvas. They won't be rushed and won't take the easy route, but will gradually get inside your heart and memory, taking up residence until you wonder how you ever lived without them.
