9/10 is the third instalment from THE TOWN HALL SESSION, the forthcoming EP from FUDGE. The EP incorporates the same feverishly infectious energy for which the band have become synonymous, whilst bringing more variety and experimentation. These elements are appropriated for the classic FUDGE. heavy indie rock vibe that they exude so effortlessly; it’s chaos but, for anyone who doesn’t already know, chaos is the band’s bread and butter.
That chaos rings true through the vocals, with Cam writing and delivering perhaps his most experiential lyrics to date, grounded in the heart of Hyde Park in Leeds where temptation leads you down unexpected roads, in the most predictable and cyclical of ways, into formulaic turmoil. Everyone knows the kind of night where you aren’t really yourself but there’s something great about that. The song is for those moments, and in honour of those moments.
The band pride themselves on their live performance which, repeatedly, is eulogised by those who find themselves caught within the chaos of a FUDGE. gig. Their epic live performance has now met head on with the majestic and iconic venue in which they recorded THE TOWN HALL SESSION. Unfazed by the grandeur of the building, the boys and the team captured their hectic performance in stark polarity to the splendour of the venue. You wouldn’t think to pair the two, but it works.
9/10 is set to be launched on 4 FEBRUARY 2022 with a headline show at LEEDS LENDING ROOM as part of Independent Venue Week where FUDGE. will perform all the songs from the EP along with a host of new songs.
