Debut Album Sham Cloud Out September 23rd Via Exploding in Sound Records.
Fond Han, Exploding in Sound Record’s resident New Jersey duo of oddness, have shared the latest track to be released from their upcoming debut album. Featuring guest vocals and guitar from Steve Hartlett (Ovlov, Stove) and organs from Alex Molini (Jackal Onasis, Stove), the song, which is called ‘Cali Cruiser, oddly has nothing to do with California but is actually about the group’s hometown of New Jersey and basically about focusing on anything other than depression.
The track beginsrather gently subdued but slowly builds into a space of chaotic fuzzy distortion and confusion. For me, it sounds like the feeling one gets when trying to learn a new skill. At first, you begin full of optimisim and joy, but begin to descend into more and more confusion and disillusionment as it becomes readily evident that this new skill is going to much harder to attain than previously expected.
