FOUND – The Fidelities EP

FOUND - The Fidelities EP

EP review for The Skinny

Apparently designed to give the lie to those who say the Scottish music scene is too ponderous or introspective, Edinburgh collective FOUND are specialists in skewed, mashed-up folk-tronica. Fans of Attic Lights and Make Model already know about their digital talents thanks to some gloriously glitchy remixes, and The Fidelities EP certainly errs more on the ‘-tronica’ side of things. With its yelled chorus and pent-up electro, Let Fidelity Break is an alt.pop hit-in-waiting, Now We’ll Never Make The Playlist is a spindly slice of unabashed funk, while This Way By Design confirms FOUND as natural successors to The Beta Band. The creative well tapped by Ziggy Campbell and his cohorts shows no sign of running dry.

Rating: 4/5

Out on 9 March through Fence/Aufgeladen & Bereit

FOUND have also released a download-only, pay-what-you-like album of remixes and rarities called snarebrained to fund their trip to the SXSW music conference in Texas. It’s available from their website. They play Old St Paul’s Church Hall, Edinburgh on 7 Mar.
