Oh, That’s Alright! Hey, That’s OK!

Sargent House has got an ear for fantastic music.  Their roster’s chock-full of kick-ass artists like Rx Bandits, Good Old War, These Arms Are Snakes, Tera Melos — all different as hell but amazing in their own rights.  Anyways, considering how awesome all these dudes are, I figured I’d check out some of their label mates that I wasn’t too familiar with.  Now I can’t stop listening to Fang Island.

Fang Island’s got a bit of everything I could ask for in a band.  Their music’s both frantic and uplifting, a bit like the frenzied cheerfulness of Los Campesinos after downing a couple of Red Bulls.  But there’s more to them than that.  You can tell from the full-band harmonies, prog-pop guitar riffs, and borderline arena rock solos that Fang Island is on top of their game.  I’ve never come across such a combination of seemingly different musical styles pulled together so well, and I doubt I ever will again.  Of the songs I’ve found, “Daisy” seems to be my favorite of the bunch.  Grab it below.

MP3: Fang Island – “Daisy”

Don’t forget to check out their video for the track.  It’s got enough Patrick Swayze references (two) to make a grown man cry.

“Goddamn! You are one radical son of a bitch!”
