Single of the Day: Fountaineer “Words With Friends” (2017)

Bendigo trio Fountaineer recently dropped a new single on us in “Words With Friends” – a return to form from the band who had taken time out of the spotlight momentarily following on from a fruitful bout of touring off the back of 2016’s Still Life.

“Words With Friends” echoes the almost drowsy indie rock stylings of your War On Drugs-eqsue groups, before building through musical unrest and overflowing in a cacophony of guitars and steady percussion throughout. As frontman Anthony White has explained of the tune, “The minutes we waste, the trivial waffle we are ensconced in, the difficult conversations we avoid, the dreams we leave unattended on the shelf – that’s what this is all about.”

Expect to see and hear more from Fountaineer in coming months but in the meantime, sink your teeth into “Words With Friends” below.
