Fergus & Geronimo, known for their ear candy ditties in the vein of Brit pop, is set to release their second full length album, Funky Was the State of Affairs, which will include their newest single, “Roman Tick.”
Andrew Savage, the founding member of the cacophonic three-piece band, seems to be tapping into his pessimistic psyche as he dabbles into themes of society’s apathy, and a tech-obsessed generation. It’s no wonder why Savage names the song, “Roman Tick,” after describing it as “a dystopian sound-scape of our civilization’s collapse.”
“Hi, I’m Heather Strange, and I’m a 23 year old human earthling female,” begins a woman as she divulges about her mundane life. “My hobbies include various forms of entertainment; music, visual stimulation, and mind- altering substance.” Clarions of distorted guitars then burst forth with a militaristic percussion waiting to climax into a frenetic clamor. The song continues with simplistic power chords spiked with an adrenaline and power punk fervor as Savage yells, “Cause I’m a Roman Tick!”
If “Roman Tick,” serves your pop punk penchant, make sure to check out their other single, “No Parties,” that serves as a glimpse into their fun and neo-psychedelic chaos.
