If I had to choose just one word to describe Far Away From Fiji’s new album it would be: “flawless” – and that’s it.
If you have been following their steps, you already know that after releasing 4 EP’s (by the way you can download them on their website for free), their full-length album “The Time Is Now” was finally introduced on the first day of October – yes, indeed, what better way to start the month than enjoying heartwarming tunes to cope with the autumn that’s invading us.
The opening track “All Is Done”, satiates your ears with comforting melodies and lyrics that will remain in your head easily, a good example is the following: “But all is done and we’re not looking back”. “In The Morning” will make you wander into their dream-pop with its humble guitar and a simplicity that proves that less is more. Then there’s “Easy To Pretend”, a more experimental and vague sound comes from this one, it reminded me of M83 at times. Some tracks later, we stumble across the dreamy and charming “Hesitate”, here we find the perfect fusion of guitar and gloomy synths.
This is just a little taste of what can be found on Far Away From Fiji’s most recent production. You don’t wanna miss this one!
Outstanding tracks: “All Is Done”, “Easy To Pretend”, “Hesitate”.
If you have the chance go and see Far Away From Fiji playing live – so far they have only announced two dates. One in Copenhagen at Din Nye Ven on 1. November and the second one in Skive at Drivhuset on 6. December 2014.
