Sydney indie-rock outfit, Hedge Fund, have just released a solid new single called ‘Look Who’s Back’.
Relatively fresh out of the blocks, they are quickly garnering admirers in such a short time. Hedge Fund released two singles in 2014 – ‘Outta Sight’ and ‘Object Of My Affection’ – both of which resulted in outstanding reviews and support from the likes of triple j, triple j Unearthed and a slew of international music blogs.
Comparatively, I felt that the hooks were a lot stronger than the verses, but only because of how addictive the former was. It seems that they truly hit their stride when they get to belt out that chorus, and should easily be a go to crowd pleaser in future gigs to come.
Drawing inspiration from post-punk greats like the The Cure, The Clash and New Order, ‘Look Who’s Back’ captures a comparably darker tone, with watery, scratching guitars forming the backbone to the song but later giving way to sumptuous falsetto from front man, Will Colvin closer to the end.
