Lafayette, Louisiana bayou bros FIGHTs make a worldly kind of indie rock. Their sound is informed by the creole culture they grew up with – songs like ‘Four Leaf Clover’ (below) feature bar band horns, and on ‘So Down So Down’ they jack some rhythms and chanty vocals straight from ‘Graceland’. The guitars are always loud, the keys are always bold, the lyrics are always effortlessly cool.
Their debut full-length ‘Music For Villains’ comes out in a couple short weeks. Judging by their striking EP ‘Summer Hits’, the album will feature catchy indie rock a la Black Lips all synthed up. Be warned – they’ll put a spell on you.
