Alt-Indie artist Felix Fontes may have taken a playful approach to the production of their latest single “Yikes”, but there’s a serious amount of infectious magnetism to the eccentrically quaint single.
Yikes is a track which will simultaneously leave you endeared and in awe at the off the cuff ingenuity which Felix Fontes will regularly throw your way. With nuances of Indie, Funk, Soul, Disco and Rock, there’s a dynamic and expressive feel behind the soundscape. And rest assured, you’ve never heard quite like this before.
With the sonic synth lines and soaring psychedelic blues riffs, Yikes is an insanely immersive track to delve into. I have a feeling that any fans of Pavement are definitely going to want this sticky sweet earworm on their playlists. Reminiscences of the Alt 90s sound may be present, but Alt-Indie doesn’t come much more stylistic than this.
