5.0 out of 5 stars Americana (UK) 8/10 “mini masterpiece of lo-fi rumblings…”, 18 Jun 2014
This review is from: Colapsar E.P. (Vinyl)
John Kennedy XFM Radio (UK)”FANTASTIC!”
Pocket Jury (UK) “The overall highlight is the fantastic ‘Blue Fugue’, which sounds like a collision between Frigid Stars era Codeine and Zuma era Crazy Horse. Building from a lush, unhurried foundation, Gargan executes a blistering Neil Young-esque guitar solo which carries the narrative of the song long after the vocals have stopped. Collapsor is certainly a striking collection of songs and you can’t help but feel that if it takes another four years for a sequel, it will be very much worth the wait.”
Slowthrills (UK) “…subtle melodies delivered in an understated baritone vocal coupled with edgy, occasionally heavy guitars. The way the songs creep up on you and develop is reminiscent of that great, often overlooked band Silkworm.”
Tom Robinson (UK) on FU’s ‘A Love Like Infinity’ : “It starts out like vintage Tyrannosaurus Rex then develops into a meandering lofi epic that’s not quite like anything else I’ve heard this year. Lovely liquid guitars, offkilter drums, unexpected harmonies and an approach that’s fresh and uplifting. What’s not to like?”
Sodapop (IT)”…the visibility they deserve is coming.”
Americana (UK) 8/10 “mini masterpiece of lo-fi rumblings…”
Whisperingandhollerin (IR)8/10 “Former Utopia inject new life into the faded denims of grungey slackerdom, with the crunching guitars and twisted pop dynamism of the Pixies and the plaintive tones and monster solos of Dinosaur Jr. And it’s totally welcome.”
3voor12 (NL) “… sound like something the Pixies would like to have.”
damusic (BE) “Zest With something strong to the lo fi of Pavement smoke (but even more rattling) knew this trio to inspire us.”
‘A Love Like Infinity’ was voted #19 in the ‘Hogmanay Hundred’ in Ally Gourlay’s Art School Dancing Castle FM Radio show,
‘Blue Fugue’ in a at #15 on ‘Left Of Centre’ on Morlands FM radio and Former Utopia had an Honorable mention in Ken Katkin’s Trash Flow radio (Cincinnati based) best of 2013 list here
