"The kind of indie band that has become all but extinct in recent years. Imagine Kasabian but without the massive egos" - NME
South London indie outfit Fractures are set to release their debut single 'Ride' on May 28th through Distiller Records.
The track, produced by Dave Eringa (Manics/Idlewild), is a dangerously hypnotic melody that displays a feral attitude and aggression that allures the young to rebel and the old to reminisce.
Lead singer Freddie's intriguing lyrics pronounce imagery so vivid it’s almost stolen from youthful memories; 'the morning sun ain't pretty enough, my words deserve a little more curve'. It's playful but with an intrinsic seriousness that could almost refer to the divine, albeit wrapped up in black skin tight jeans and a baggy sweater with long black unkempt hair.
Having already been tipped by NME as ones to watch for this year, the band charged into 2012 at #1 on the Amazing Radio charts with a demo recorded in Freddie's bedroom - a track which went on to spend over two months at the summit and a performance at HMV's hotly tipped Next Big Thing festival.
Fractures will be playing the following shows:
April 24th - Barfly, London (supporting Gaz Coombes)
May 12th - Brighton, The Great Escape Festival
Fractures are Freddie Murray, Matt Gwyer, Sam Cook and Gaz Southwell.
