Fred – Evergreen

In many ways this is the least obvious track to go blathering about from Fred’s incandescent ‘Go God Go’ album. It being a multi-faceted beast with a couple of fairly obviously nods to the Scissor Sisters and the Arcade Fire amongst other behemoths but perhaps it’s when they concentrate on just being Fred like on ‘Evergreen’ that my gra really starts to bloom. The Cork (maybe some Kerry in there too) collective have hardly appeared from nowhere given than this is their 3rd long player but surely ‘Go God Go’ will catapult them. At last we have an Irish band prepared take some risks and more importantly succeed in turning them into sweet audio. And despite the influences ‘Go God Go’ never fails to sound fresh, vibrant and adept at handling repeat visits. Looks like the Rebels are beginning to Yell all over again. KD

    Saw these guys live recently and was very impressed, lead singer has a real charm and very likeable.His voice is simply stunning and for me at times it was unmistakenly Phil Lynottish
