Febueder – Alligator (single) (Tape Club Records)
With their forthcoming debut EP, ‘Soap Carv’, set for release on 25 November, Ascot experimental / indie rock trio Febueder have released a video for the EP’s lead track “Alligator” which you can watch below.
Exhibiting post-punk-esque peculiarity, “Alligator” is an unusual yet surprisingly melodic and massively catchy tune.
Characterised and driven by an angular and funky bass line, “Alligator” travels along with a mid-paced groove taking the listener on a winding journey through its odd arrangement.
With only drums, bass and a single guitar playing counter-rhythms as the song’s sole instruments, then add an atmospheric vocal loop which lays underneath the track and acts as an instrument of sorts.
Just when you thought you had a handle on it, for the song’s final 40 seconds, the trio of Kieran Godfrey, Harry Summersgill and Samuel Keysell, orchestrate another off-kilter turn with yet more angular riffing.
The EP ‘Soap Carv’ featuring “Alligator” will be released on 25 November, 2013 on Tape Club Records.
