Free Music Friday! Fanzine - "Roman Holiday"
STREAM: "Roman Holiday" - http://soundcloud.com/fanzine/roman-holiday
"Roman Holiday" is already a firm favorite for crowds that have managed to catch Fanzine live this year. With its catchy as hell AC/DC-tinged opening riff, cooing vocal hooks and howling guitar solo, it's been their opening song ever since they penned it, so it's only fitting that it be the one to introduce them to the world.
"My Stupid Brain" sees the band slow things down a little- vocalists/ songwriters Ed Hayes and Jock Norton trade breezy guitar licks over wistful, whispered vocals that lackadaisically lament the self sabotage of an idle mind. "Your brain's bored of me and mine is too, so help me out" Jock pleads as the song steers itself towards an explosive crescendo. This has provided the second bookend to their live shows, which will mean fans will have to see the band in the flesh to find out what goes in between.
