- Symbolic Violence by The Felt Tips
8/10 Ian Staff review, 30 May 2013
Glasgow Indie Poppers The Felt Tips release their second album on Firestation Records, ‘Symbolic Violence’ is perfect jangle indie for all you floppy haired art students from the 80’s out there, for me this conjures up images of Duffle coats and satchels covered in Smiths badges, it’s easy to see who The Felt Tips influences are on this record, the twee sounds of St Christopher, The Sugargliders, The Field Mice and the like all come pouring out here, with lyrics that talk of school bullies and ex-girlfriends told with a twang of a Glaswegian accent.
There’s an element of Morrissey/ Marr tongue in cheek attitude to songwriting and even a Marr reverb guitar sound but The Felt Tips have a more intimate feel, ‘Symbolic Violence’ is a like an old friend, it takes you to a place that’s safe and warm and you reminisce about the good old days growing up on that council estate, good times indeed!
