Review of Aphorism by Letters to Fiesta
This week we received a copy of the debut EP to review from Letters To Fiesta. Called Aphorism (meaning “an original thought” for you dummies out there). And boy, is this original. Much likened to Kate Bush by others, this band bring to your ears beautiful and wistful music stitched with the odd edgy piece. A word of warning though – this is not music to be listened to on some scratchy old player or through a duff pair of headphones. Get the best player and phones that you can find, go hide somewhere quiet and listen to this sweet sweet music.
The EP contains seven tracks although two are really space fillers (Tetration and Elected). The other five tracks are all worth listening to although the two stand out tracks for me were Stay Young and Vampires. Just listen – don’t try and work out the lyrics or try and make too much sense of them. You will need to be taking drugs to do this.
A nice debut EP from this northern four-piece and worth picking up if you want something different to chill to.
