Fit The Paradigm - Jack Butler

(Whimsical)

Starting with 20th Century Fox-esque snare drums, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re about to be hit by something dramatic and cinematic, grandiose even. Instead, you’re nodding your head before you realise it, thinking how unlikely it is that the bastard child of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foals should sound this good. Shades of Franz Ferdinand disco and latter-day Marmaduke Duke find their way in there throughout the album, making it irresistibly funky and danceable, the only criticism being that it never really leaves this comfort zone with any success. Hopefully, though, this is ground that will be explored in a second album sometime soon.

This album really grew on me from when I first bought it... 'Hit it out the park, son' and 'Boy Vs Beast' both fantastic Scottish singles. Definitely a band to watch out for this year, I'm very interested to hear future material. K
