To write about the people, places, and experiences on offer in this beautiful place is some of the most fun I’ve had in my short life, and I am always excited for the future of music in the South-West I’m a sucker for acts from far-off lands, but home is where the heart is right?

Bold as brass and bursting with beastly energy, garage-punk duo Fat Earthers have blessed the DIY scene with news of their debut album ‘Bored‘, along with a fat, frantic single ‘Phoney‘ to kick off fans’ excitement on July 6th.

Isle of Wight natives Luke Curtis and Kyle Abrahams have been taking their homeland by storm with punkish ferocity, their latest single ‘Like Like Like‘ taking a satirical poke at the monotony of modern life with energy and vigor.

The explosive new single ‘Phoney‘ follows their “poke fun at everything” mantra proudly, putting the band’s new material into a league of its own – smashing through the sound barrier with the force of a fighter jet, gripping listeners and shaking the cobwebs loose in a whirlwind of fuzzy ferocity as they take on the everyday issues of modern life.

Totally self-sustained and releasing on their DIY label Prison Records, the two friends have been fearlessly feeding modernity, politics and 21st-century angst through a meat grinder and offer you a delicious auditory bolognaise, ripe with rhythmic mayhem and hot takes.

Speaking about their upcoming material, the two stated: “Luke Moves like a hurricane when it comes to songwriting, chords and riffs lurch and lunge like a heaven sent deluge where as kyle is like the lynch pin harnessing the chaotic energy in the eye of the storm, the product being 2 – 3 minute punchy cruise missile like tracks that have their crosshairs fixed firmly on everything that is wrong with modern life from Right wing politics, Misogyny, Trolls, Karens and all that is Angst inducing in the 21st Century

Guaranteed to get the blood pumping and hair stood on end, the debut album ‘Bored‘ drops on October 19th later this year.

You can catch Fat Earthers live in Portsmouth at Psyched Festival on 18th September 2021.
