Featuring as DIY’s Neu pick of the month in September, and fresh off of a DIY Presents tour with Scottish duo Honeyblood, North-west quartet EAT FAST produce scuzzy lo-fi indie rock somewhere between the sun-drenched California garage-psych of Wavves and Thee Oh Sees, backed by hazy lyrics, sharp harmonies and layers of thick reverb.
On first listen, you could easily mistake them for just another new wave garage rock band, but EAT FAST’s Geordie roots are proudly cemented into their tunes, pretty obviously in early songs like ‘Byker Drone’ and ‘Fenham Dreadlock’, appropriately named after the band’s old stomping grounds.
Blaring new single ‘Public Display of Affection has a Nai Harvest-y ring to it, with swirling distorted vocals winding over throbbing fuzzed-out guitar riffs, it’s hard to tell where the screeching vocals end and the instruments begin! ‘Public Display of Affection’ could show EAT FAST experimenting with new musical styles, and with a 16-track LP on the horizon, it doesn’t look like they’re gonna stop anytime soon.
