Before they show off an indie-rock sound that mostly evades generalization, have a look at this lyric video for “Compunction” where our new intern Riley was reminded of FIDLAR and the rest of us just get to watch the band on a roll — a toilet roll that is.
“The toilet paper was being displayed in a grotesque manner...descending from the back,” drummer Denny Umphreys told CL in a message. “I think the subconscious had a hand, as I've always loved prison scenes where inmates are being as clever as they can in concealing communication - jotting down in the middle of a roll and rewinding it to perfection”
It's a funny clip and belies the track’s message and meaning.
“That tune was our revival track, if you will. Shifting our focus from an acoustic guitar-led performance for many years to an electric front allowed us to branch out and find comfort in unfamiliar waters” Umphrey’s said. “[It] sums up our current direction to some extent, as we never like being pigeon-holed [sic] as one particular breed of sound.”
