This is a flaming kiss of distorted passion, and a well needed piece of electric escapism. The Californian-based dynamic outfit Hayley And The Crushers return with a new set of tracks, a six-song set aptly titled Fun Sized. In truth, it follows up last year’s Vintage Millennial stylishly, at times the energy is filled with more hunger than that previous work, and it is something that deserves investigation.
The sullen beat of the dramatically paced “Angelyne” keeps everything within the right scope. The lyrics define a tongue-in-cheek outlook of modern society creating a rollicking tale which sets the scene for “Church Of Flag”. The latest single, and standout piece sees the outfit open up the musical throttle that little bit more, and soar with a sledgehammer impact. With a somewhat aspect of eighties metal entwined within the track, it becomes an exciting listening experience.
While not a lengthy release, Fun Sized does exactly what it says on the tin -a sparkling blast of fun, mixed with a sizable amount of melodic noise. Containing a lack of filler in place of some feel-good, upbeat music this is an exceptional release. Ultimately, Hayley And The Crushers remind us while no music nowadays is original, some bands still manage to remain unique.
