After two EP’s in 2018, Fuzzy Sun have been conquering the small corner of the world that houses indie-pop. The quintet’s latest single ‘I Ain’t Right’ is their first sign of new music this year, and it’s been worth the wait.

After only being together for a year, Fuzzy Sun’s achievements have been admirable. The band have bagged themselves the City Life award for the Best Breakthrough act, played as support on two tours with Blossoms and even held their very own headline tour in May. Now, Fuzzy Sun look to be expanding their accomplishments with more brand new music.

‘I Ain’t Right’ holds all of the standard Fuzzy Sun elements that made us fall in love with them last year. A driving bassline and groovy, sparkling synths create their classic disco-funk sound. Electric guitar licks can also be heard in all of the nooks and crannies, giving this song the energy to feel full of life. This makes the song joyous which is helped by the strong drumbeat with quirky fillers in all of the right places.

The upbeat, catchy chorus line ‘I’m just trying to love you’ is repeated throughout the whole song in a tuneful manner with striking harmonies running parallel. In fact, lead singer Kyle Ross’ vocals are particularly coherent in this track creating a well-gelled song. The strong chemistry between each separate component helps to pull the whole track together and give it Fuzzy Sun’s unique signature.

Borrowing their mantra from Snarky Puppy, Fuzzy Sun “make music for both brain and booty”. Having played together for just over a year, the Stockport-based five-piece already boast an impressive résumé: Two support tours with hometown friends, Blossoms; two EPs; their own headline tour; the City Life award for Best Breakthrough act and their new single, produced by acclaimed producer, Cam Blackwood. Comprised of frontman Kyle Ross, bassist Lewis Jobson, drummer Mitch Bancroft, Daisy Valentine on keyboards and backing vocals and Raffaele Pani rounding out the line-up on guitar, expect seductive harmonies, soul-infused rhythms and melodies reminiscent of California sun.

A journey through melodic pop is what’s to be expected from this Stockport five-piece, Fuzzy Sun. The freshly formed line-up, fronted by the lulling vocals of Kyle Ross, sees a distinct and original take on chorus-heavy reveries. Daisy Valentines bold and melancholic synth, coupled with sweet and seductive harmonies is equally complemented by Lewis Jobson and Mitch Bancroft’s strong soothing groove through the rhythm section. Fuzzy Sun bring you contemporary pop, infused with psychedelia, dipped in naughties R’n’B nostalgia, with just a hint of disco flare.

Fuzzy Sun are signed to Blossoms’ own label ‘Very Cleaver Records’, Fuzzy Sun have been causing waves in and around Manchester with their brand of 80s indie but with a modern twist and with more and more high profile gigs coming up (partly due to the aforementioned signing), word is bound to spread, especially as they have some fantastic tunes so far.
