Fang Island: Major

An album for the indie fans.

Fang Island are a group based out of Rhode Island that incorporate a fun mixture of indie rock and neo-psychedelia into their sound. The album gets started off on a high note with the opening track “Kindergarten” which features a pleasant piano hook that drives the whole song forward. Other stand out tracks include the rip-roaring “Dooney Rock” which includes some outstanding guitar work and the harder edged “Chime Out.” This album is recommended for fans who like their indie to come packed with loud guitars and big hooks.
