Answer Back release “Fate And Fortune” EP
UK duo Oliver Grizzell and Chris Lewin go by the name of Answer Back and since 2010 they have been performing and recording their own DIY brand of music, instruments and recordings and the fact they’ve been going seven years now is a testiment of their ever growing fanbase and their grip on the music industry. This is never more evident than in their superb new EP, “Fate And Fortune”, which is out now.
The five track EP is a soft-rock/Country/pop extravaganza of uplifting and instantly catchy tunes from the opening “Count To Three” to the brilliant “Blissful”, the anthemic “Fate” and the strident “Bleeding Heart”, this is music for gigs, festivals or just for putting a smile on your face. “Fate And Fortune” is hopefully the first in a trilogy for the boys; a new, raw rocky take on their usual pop songs.
Answer Back tell us: “The band has taken a new direction, after a long hiatus we’re back, and this time we have brought everything back to basics. Drums, guitars, some keys and our voices, with an exciting new vision for a future of rock and rawness, layered on top of classic Answer Back pop melodies. A lot of thought, effort and energy has gone into creating this new Answer Back sound; the sound of our new era”.
The boys add: “After a a few years of quiet, and some thinking about where to take the band we have decided to get back to those grounded recordings that make all musicians fall in love with the process, and hope it will help people connect to our songs in a new way”. Well, we certainly think this is a collection of songs to shout about. Enjoy!
