Introducing… FEZ

Musically schmooze your way to best boy status with this psychedelic bluesy number.

FEZ are an East London band that I’d describe as smooth operators. Their brand of vintage psychedelia, a plentiful helping of jazz influences and a bit of blues jamming for the electric guitar solos is effortlessly rich in flavour. Their new single ‘Best Friend’ has a maximised thick bassline, smooth layered vocals, vintage keys meshed with modern-day synths and a rhythm that could slide it into anyone’s DM’s without warning. It’s not quite funk, it’s not quite rock, it’s not fully psychedelia either and you could potentially hear it in a 1970s elevator. It has left me very intrigued and wanting more.

On speaking about the track FEZ said it started when their bassist Mischa looped 3 basslines together and then raised them into higher registers. Bass is often thought of as the glue that binds a band together but with ‘Best Friend’, the bass is the main melody. When combined with Moog synths, you have tasteful vintage nods with a forward-thinking way of song design.

‘Best Friend’ is out now and you can enjoy the track below. for more information on all things FEZ, have a rummage on their Linktree to pick which platform to follow them on.
