We’ve been used to dark, misery drenched sometimes beautiful, sometimes frantic lo-fi punk come alt-rock from Stirling resident Craig Ferrie, aka December ’91.
His new single, the first of two from an upcoming album due December time via Gold Mold Records, ‘Starin’ At The Freaks’ is noticeably less lo-fi, with a lively optimistic sounding constantly driving backdrop that comes with an addictive vocal line that recalls the likes of Kurt Vile’s drawl delivery.
Coming off the back of touring through Canada, and a tour of France and Germany with friend Kenny Bates, aka lefthand, and it’s a bright bit of alternative pop that brings in all the sunshine of the boat journey captured in the video and brings a welcome upbeat addition to the ever growing December ’91 catalogue.
