Fang Island describes its sound as "everyone high-fiving everyone." And, the Brooklyn quintet's
anthemic and soaring songs make it quite possibly one of few bands befitting such description.
Its finger-tapping guitar lines, chanted vocals, triumphant harmonies and overall perky songs
hearken to the sort of "Total Music" of the Fucking Champs, Jay Reatard, Ponytail, Kraftwerk,
Marnie Stern, Thin Lizzy, et al. But, perhaps more so, its songs are like the music in your head
at that moment when everything feels just right: that first kiss, that high score on the video
game, buying your first small nation in cash... you know, good stuff.
Canadian four-piece band Hollerado will perform with Fang Island at New York’s Bowery Ballroom. Coming off a remarkable period that culminated in the recent release of the band’s highly entertaining “Human 8-Bit” video for its song “Americanarama,” Hollerado has gained attention as one of Montreal’s top up-and-coming artists. Its work has been favorably compared to the music of Supergrass, Stephen Malkmus, and Weezer.
