Manchester based lo-fi pop outfit The Foetals is the latest project from Jolan Lewis (who also fronts of The Pink Teens, plays in Francis Lung’s (ex WU LYF) band & Aldous RH too – busy guy).
Lewis and his cohorts released their debut LP Meet The Foetals, last week through PNKSLM Recordings, and with that a new single. Entitled ‘Nothing’ – The Foetals new single – is the latest of Lewis’ tunes to convey his preference for fuzz-drenched, ’60s inspired nostalgic garage pop and provides a timely reminder of his finesse and knack for a good pop tune. Irresistible scuzzy fuzz is the name of the game here, allied gloriously by jangly guitars, earworm melodies and muffled drums, to leave us with a retro fest of to allure your ears and warm your heart. Endearing and charming, Lewis makes crafting wonderfully catchy songs seem so simple.
You can check out ‘Nothing’ for yourself below. The debut LP Meet The Foetals, is out now via PNKSLM Recordings on limited edition 12″ vinyl and as a special edition deluxe package. One worth checking out for sure, and not to get lost in a sea of end of year lists.
