FMLYBND have quite the positive reputation back home at Isla Vista, CA
FMLYBND – Letting Go:
FMLYBND might not be a name you recognize at the moment, but I urge you to pay close attention to the wonderful music these mega talented synth rockers are pumping out. Releasing jam after to jam over the last two years, it’s definitely safe to say this six piece is poised to go big places. I’m already stumped as to what’s taking everyone so long to catch on, but, like usual, these hidden gems take awhile to surface into the mainstream. I doubt that will be a problem in 2015 as FMLYBND has made the ultimate promise to their fans, and the world, to release a new single every month. So keep an eye on their Soundcloud!
Letting Go is FMYLBND’s chillingly delightful release for the month of January. So much allure to be found in the heart pumping synth hook that laces its way throughout the track. Which rests only to give the other lovely elements, that are indeed crucial to the song’s success, a chance to shine. If this is the appeasing direction and fulfilling sound that the band is heading towards, than I am going to go ahead and double down on my level excitement for these consummate Californians. I tremble before the idea of a full album.
Speaking of excitement, FMLYBND have announced they will be playing the 2nd annual Big Guava Music Festival (May 8th-9th) located in Tampa, Florida. So of course I went ahead and bought a pre-sale ticket, and I tell no lies when I say that FMLYBND being on the bill was a huge push in making the early purchase. I had no idea this amazing group would be finding their way to my humble state so soon. I just couldn’t pass on this perfect opportunity, and I can’t wait to see you wonderful lot make my day come this May!

FMLYBND – Forever:
Something sweet sounding is filling the air with carefree vibes and poppy tones. These deliciously fresh sounds are the product of six piece California natives FMLYBND. Based out of Isla Vista, the band already has a solid foundation of support for their music – all of their family and friends. It truly is nice to see a band hold such regard for family values intrinsically, and to still be able to make such damn good music.
Their latest single Forever is an anthem of youthful vigor. Completely jam packed full of energy at times, yet never seems to be overwhelming or chaotic. Perhaps the song is best fit for a sunny day adventure where the only restrictions are the shoes on your feet and the friends you bring along to share the moment. Being more than just a run-of-the-mill track, Forever is the pure bliss of happy days passed and all the amazing memories that are still to come.
WARNING! Listening to Electricity will cause rapid spasms of rhythmic movement in your legs. Not only that but your brain will be fried by the overwhelming catchiness of that synth hook. So good luck accomplishing anything productive when all you want to do is whistle that damn synth! I’m serious when I say Electricity is criminally good and we should hold FMLYBND accountable for their actions. When they make music this good you are left with simply no choice but to buy their debut Gold EP, which will see a release next week on the 27th of September. I cannot wait to abuse my brain by exposing it to such infectious tunes.
