Single Review: Fauves – Wither Away

by Emily Duff

Fauves new single, Wither Away, just dropped on First Run Records. Always keeping their music interesting, the Glaswegian Indie Pop band uses a mixture of funk, jazz and disco to create unique sounds. 

After the release of their single, Afterglow, I’ve been a huge fan of the band and this new tune definitely lives up to expectations. Opening with a slow, calming guitar, the song then turns to a funky riff with drum accompaniment. The tranquil voice of the lead singer then further adds to the atmospheric feel of this single – making it a great tune to put you in a good mood. A chill-out, upbeat anthem perfect for the soundtrack of a productive day.

With their name being inspired by the 20th century French movement of Fauvism, the band creates colourful and confident music. Whether it just makes your head sway or your Mick Jagger moves come out, the song is great to get you up and about. Get this, and their accompanying new single Bathe, blasting on your speakers and finally have that spring clean.

Likened to MGMT and Metronomy by BBC Radio Scotland and citing Tame Impala as an inspiration, their music is always funky and fresh. Gradually gaining more success and recognition, especially after their single, Bleep Blop, was playlisted by Japanese Radio show, Osaka, has all led to them being Hot Listed by Spotify after this track dropped. Fauves are worthy of all the credit they get.

Hopefully the release of Wither Away teases at plans for an album in the works.
