The Fatty Acids – Airsick [Wisconsin, US]

Electronic / Pop / Rock


Much like a new contributor might do to a blog, this Milwaukee band is looking to shake things up a bit. While the first listen through Airsick might be surprising and biting, a quick follow-up leads to the schizophrenically switching crashing synths and slick fuzz-laden guitars becoming a fun, jumpy ride that takes you here, there, and all around. Juxtaposition is the key here, and it comes in at a million miles a minute: whether it’s “little wisdom” contrasted against the foolishness of someone who “ran away,” or the concreteness of every “city in the world” presented before a “dream in the clouds.” These images quickly sung over such quickly blinking music really make you feel the suddenness of life (almost enough to make you queasy…airsick even?), but make it seem so pretty despite its brashness. With this only being the first single off their upcoming 3rd full-length, Boléro, to be released digitally September 3rd, and it being a much tighter, more carefully edited song than anything in their catalog, I can’t help but be excited about what other wonderful oddities lie in store.
