‘Get over It’ from Fendahlene is a relationship problem in a catchy song

Get over It‘ from Fendahlene is a relationship problem in a catchy song that has lots of awesome riffs to keep us wildly entertained.

Fendahlene were formed in Sydney back in late 1994 by Paul Whiteley (guitar and vocals) and Ashley Hurst (bass). After moving to Europe in 2006 from Australia, they decided to have a break to reboot. They soon returned to the studio in 2018 to record their new album, High and Low and Back Again at Urchin Studios in East London over a period of two years, the album featuring ‘Get Over It’ dropped in July 2020.

The bass line are tremendous here on Get over It and this is a top act. The vocals are smooth like a bald head, the catchy vibe has you pricking your ears up to hear more. This is the mark of a quality track.

This is the story about getting over a relationship that isn’t going well. Things were great and then life happened. You are tired or being in the firing line and have decided to move on as it isn’t worth it anymore. Or will you be able to chat about it and move on? Time will tell but things aren’t looking good so far.

Get over It‘ from Fendahlene is a fine indie-rock song and the catchy elements keep you hooked all the way through. This might be the new breakup anthem of 2020.

Fendahlene – High and Low and Back Again: Alchemically Evocative Alt Indie Post Punk

With an intro which carries the same aural weight as a quiescently morose melody from Nils Frahm, Alt Indie trailblazers Fendahlene’s single kicks off “High and Low and Back Again” with a teasing start before settling into an intricately masterful feat of Indie Power Pop.

Any fans of the National, R.E.M., Bon Iver, Arcade Fire and Interpol will definitely want to pay attention to the band’s latest release. There’s no replicating that Alt 90s sound, Fendahlene didn’t have to, the Australian-based artist has been crafting alchemically evocative tracks since their inception in 1994.

With the cuttingly angular Post Punk guitar tones weaving around the resolving vocals, High and Low and Back Again unfolded as an unforgettably soul-filling stylistic Indie hit. We’re already stoked to hear what is next.

You can check out High and Low and Back Again for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.

There will be plenty more to come from the band in 2020 and beyond. Keep up to date with the artist’s latest news and releases via Facebook.
