Daily Dose: ‘Disarm’ by Fossil Collective

Continuing the low key vibe, here’s some light and relaxing guitar music. Fossil Collective are a new one on me, but I believe they are formed from the remnants of Leeds band Vib Gyor. For starters, I will say that Fossil Collective is a much better name, so well done on upgrading there, chaps. Also, this does not sound like music from a band from Leeds: it’s spacious and airy and gentle, which are not things I associate with that city at all, but hey ho. Anyway, this is really quite lovely. It’s the first track of the new Flux EP, which is very short at 17 minutes so won’t take up much of your time, and is quite a pleasant little thing if you’re feeling in the mood for something soft and delicate. It’s a little bit like a cross between Radiohead before they got all fancy and the Fleet Foxes, but doesn’t quite have the madness of either. I quite took to the EP, and whilst I wouldn’t call it especially challenging or innovative, it’s intricately put together and enjoyable if you like a bit of sedate indie-rock. Plus, I’m always happy to support Yorkshire bands, and I like this songs earnest feel and subdued attitude. Here’s hoping to see a full album at some point in the not too distant future.
