New Band Of The Day: Fuzz

29th October 2013

With Fuzz drawing unavoidable comparisons to Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer and The Jimi Hendrix Experience the new single really is a record which deserves to be turned up loud!


In case you haven’t heard, the prolific (and restless) Ty Segall has a new side project – the critically acclaimed Fuzz.

Segall has teamed up with his friends Charlie Moonheart (guitar) and Roland Cosio (bass) to form a true meeting of garage-rock minds. The project sees the underground hero take a back seat on the drums and yet his recognisable vocals still manage to dominate the overall sound.

This is exactly the case with the new single ‘What’s In My Head’ – the latest offering from the band’s self-titled debut album.

The track provides a heavy proto-metal psychedelic onslaught while also allowing room for a soaring melody – fittingly described as a “slacker version of the Beach Boys”.

Here the word “Fuzz” really is unavoidable as the distorted, bluesy guitars and big drums fills rise and fall and low key verses lead to the explosive chorus.

This is the perfect example of stoner rock – it’s catchy, harmonious and at once menacing.
