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.
