- Must Be Nice by Fat Creeps
This Boston based three piece have been touted in certain circles as a band to watch and on the the strength of this, their debut LP on Sophomore Lounge, its easy to see why. The band play lively, hook driven indie-rock in the vein of The Breeders/ Pixies combined with some sweet, layered dream-pop vocals from bassist Mariam Saleh and guitarist Gracie Jackson.
It’s clear from their name and their generally breezy approach that they don’t take themselves too seriously. Nevertheless, the real jewels in this collection of songs are the moodier, darker numbers: like ‘He Comes In Loudly’, which almost reminds me of Come with its sneary melancholy and tough minor key breakdowns; or the languid jangle-pop of ‘In Name Only’, with its shades of The Smiths being fronted by Kim Gordon (if she was able to sing in tune!). It’s not a terribly original record but the band exudes a ‘who gives a shit’ attitude that makes their bittersweet college rock all the more enjoyable.
