The jangle is strong on this one, the new single from Melbourne band The Fainters. Vocals flow like Belle & Sebastian branded honey as the band sit back on the beat and let the guitars chime over high-in-the-mix drums. ‘Guide Me To Beauty’ has a loose, melancholic feel that works a treat.
Just as you think it’s going to roll on in the same fashion there’s a soft distortion that enters the fray giving some grit and sonic caffeine. Lovely, unassuming stuff all round.
