Track Of The Day :: Fallow Deer - Holding On
Words: Alison Mack
Despite their liking for shades of deep red (plays havoc on the eyes when you have to look at for some time), Brighton foursome Fallow Deer have turned out a bit of a nice piece of tunenage.
‘Holding On’ - produced by The Magic Gang’s Kristian Smith - hits just the right space if you're already sick and tired of cheesy Christmas songs. Vocalist George Smale lends plenty of aggressive verve to the fuzzed-up post-punk indie-pop sound.
[In fact, it was more than two years ago now that we first came across young Mr. George, and were suitably impressed, at that time with former band Ancient Times.]
Fallow Deer play Brighton’s Green Door Store tomorrow (December 18).
