Fanclub (Leslie Crunkilton, Mike Lee, Daniel Schmidt), the Austin, Texas based indie/dreampop trio are building up quite an impressive back catalogue for themselves. The band has followed up their All the Same EP with the delicious sound that is Uppercut. Prepare to be knocked out!
The trio have very much developed their own style – as per previous songs such as Swear the spirit of C86 runs through every fibre of Uppercut. Yes the track has a light and dreamy tone, the vocals sound as if they’re wrapped in gauze and drenched in kaolin, but at its core lies a steely and fierce resolve that can’t help but win you over.
Uppercut can be streamed on Spotify and with more of Fanclub’s music also available on Bandcamp. As well as being on Facebook the band are also very active on Instagram and Twitter where you can get details of their upcoming US gigs – including Lincoln Calling in Nebraska this September. Don’t forget to check out the sweet and rather witty video for the song, which was directed by Shannon Wiedemeyer. Photo by Marshall Tidrick.
