The track weaves funk-tinged space rock wig-outs with classic rock riffs and drivetime radio pop
hooks. This is one to file alongside Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Janes Addiction and The Music.
It comes after their single ‘Money’ and ahead of their EP I’m Insane and Everybody Else Is Too. All
the releases are/will be out via Liverpool label Modern Sky – a label that’s become a tastemaker
and springboard for many great bands coming out of the North West England guitar scene and
beyond. They join the likes of Spinn and Jamie Webster on the roster.
Asked to break down the new single’s theme, Fuzzy Sun frontman Kyle Ross brings up a plethora
of philosophical and cultural theory references that make it on there. One of the most profound
references is about cyber warfare and is sung in the chorus: ‘set off the information bomb!’.
“That line is taken from a Paul Virilio book, which discusses how the next big world disaster will be
an explosion of
information rather than a physical bomb. I think is something that we can already see taking place
in the world,” says the singer.
Moving on to speak about the EP more broadly, and comparing the new music to the group’s
previous EP, which was released in 2021. he adds:
“I took more of an outward gaze when writing the lyrics this time.
“It was a nice way to approach the songs and made me write in a different way..
“I was deeply into themes of postmodernism, technology, globalisation, hyperrealism, and
capitalism, and how they affect us on a personal and societal level. Also, I was going through a
bad period of depression, and, in a way, I think these songs were inspired by that. Getting those
feelings out of my head and into a creative space was a great way to expel some of these darker
Kyle is the band’s spokesperson and de facto leader of Fuzzy Sun. That said, the four-piece band
are very much a unit – a tight live band – and came together to write and record the upcoming
four-track release. The band sifted through a catalogue of nearly 30 songs to get to the potent few
that made the cut for pressing.
And sonically it’s easily the band’s most prolific work to date. That expansive, arena-shaking
bombast was helped as they recorded the drums at EVE studio, where the likes of Doves,
Everything Everything and The Charlatans have recorded.
The rest of the instrumentation was recorded at their home studio in Stockport and they
self-produced the “big tunes you can really sink your teeth into” (Kyle)
Previous Fuzzy Sun releases were DIY, grassroots work. Even without label backing, through
determined work ethic and the strength of their live shows, managed to open for some major UK
artists, tour Europe and the UK several times.
Music journalists and broadcasters have been championing them along the way. Earning support
from NME’s 100 List, CLASH, DORK, Earmilk, Gigwise, BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music, Radio X and
Spotify’s New Music Friday UK and Hot New Bands playlists – to name a few – has been a dream
foundation for the band. who have huge ambition and the talent to match.
