Fuzzy Lights was born in 2004 and has since grown from a two-piece violin and electric guitar duo to a five-piece band. This gradual change in line-up has allowed them to build on their sound by weaving together elements of psych-folk, Americana and noise-rock. With their new album 'Twin Feathers' Fuzzy Lights have brought about a natural development of their sound. Vocals feature more prominently amongst the eerie melodies and meticulous arrangements, acting as strands threaded through the music. Never explicit or declamatory they paint subtle pictures, hinting at the quiet moments and open spaces that define the band's immediate environment at the edge of England's Fens. The opening instrumental 'Obscura' is like a half-remembered soundtrack to Eastern European cinema, caught accidentally late night on TV when you should be sleeping. The bewitching violin and bleakly melodic guitar dance around a deceptive arrangement that subtly bridges ‘Twin Feathers’ and the debut ‘A Distant Voice’. By contrast, 'Fallen Trees', which follows with its seasick guitar and otherworldly vocals, stands at the crossroads of 1960's British folk and haunted noise-rock. It is this unlikely intertwining which truly defines Fuzzy Lights' sound. Elsewhere, a subdued violence that is kept in check for much of the record makes its presence felt. In 'Shipwrecks’, a minimal droning opening develops into a pastoral hymn before giving way to a blast of overdriven slide guitar, thunderous drums and a violin on edge. Something in that tension describes 'Twin Feathers' as a whole: the record's delicate surface slowly reveals tension beneath and, like the metaphorical contradiction implied by its title, it both soars and crashes with stunning conviction. For fans of Dirty Three / Godspeed You Black Emperor / Savage Republic / Willard Grant Conspiracy should take note. "Twin Feathers" is a record which stands at the crossroads of 1960's British folk, and haunted noise rock.
