Following utterly infectious offerings such as ‘Pity Party’ and ‘Bank Of Mum And Dad’, GIHE faves Fightmilk have now signed to Reckless Yes and released their truly fantastic debut album Not With That Attitude.
Taken from the album, new single ‘Four Star Hotel’ explores the end of band members Alex Wisgard and Lily Rae’s respective relationships. A scuzzy, sparkling anti-love songs spiced with a tongue in cheek wit and refreshing cynicism (“a four star hotel, we still didn’t fuck…”), the track turns the usual romantic vision of trips to Amsterdam on its head. Of the track, Alex explains: “… almost every line is based on one of our two true stories, from the shit-eating grins in the holiday photographs to having to push two twin beds together in a hotel room.”
Filled with jangly riffs and Lily’s silky smooth vocals, true to Fightmilk form, it’s an immensely catchy, instant smile-inducing slice of luscious punk-infused indie-pop at its finest.
Not With That Attitude is out now via Reckless Yes. Catch Fightmilk live at their launch show on 2nd November at The Shaklewell Arms. Or, live at The Finsbury for yours truly on 14th December!
