BEGINNING life as a low-key bedroom project before being renovated and reimagined as a fully fledged band, Glasgow’s Fauves have been their campaign to seize hold of your attention in earnest with a series of enticingly original tracks.
Steadily making a name for themselves amid the ever-shifting landscape that is Scotland’s modern day scene, the group may be in their infancy but they harbour massive amounts of potential in both songwriting and execution.
As opposed to carrying on within the confines of a home set-up, Ryan Caldwell and co recently decamped to a proper studio and the end product was the shimmering ‘Hit Like This.’
Bustling with the sort of restless energy that can only be elicited from a band with an exciting road ahead, their first foray into recording music as a band is a sleek number that lies somewhere between the exotic sounds of Australia’s finest psychedelic bands and the exquisite balladry of Whitney. Led by a wonderfully unorthodox bassline that Thundercat would approve of , the band’s knack for constructing catchy indie-pop music whilst adhering to their own set of rules is to be admired and is sure to inspire a great deal of excitement as they continue to make their presence felt.
Fauves will perform at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut on Friday 24th March as part of BBC 6 Music’s Fringe Festival.
