Fudge. have blessed us with the released of ‘The Town Hall Session’, a five track counting EP containing three previously released singles and two new pieces of artistic pop rock. The Leeds-based band are putting their stamp on the local scene with their vigorous rock sound! Their EP marks the end of an era, “a time where things seemed simpler but, in retrospect, were in fact just as turbulent and impetuous as they are now.”
What most stood out to me were the lyrics of ‘Money to Be Made’, straight, to the point and very relatable, closest to what used to be punk. Riffing and rambling soundscapes and low pitched vocals make for a strong and impressive track and EP. ‘Pepsi Noggins’ is perhaps the lightest out of the five tracks on the EP, with an almost festive indie rock rhythm, and a slightly more uplifting hook. A favourite on ‘The Town Hall Session’ must be ‘9/10’, a punk rock track with feral riffs and some impressive vocal lines!
While the EP is the end of an era, it’s also the beginning of a new age of Fudge., they’ll guide us back to life as we knew it before the shit-show commenced. The EP is meant to be a celebration, and for those of us that love blazing riffs and soundscapes made for the pit, Fudge. have created just that!
