A Melodic Rock Rumble

Surrey rockers Fony have refined their sound after the departure of singer Olly Gibbons. 'Waco', the first single to be taken for the band's forthcoming album 'Mercy After Fiction' is a melodic melange of tight, cutting guitars, bursting percussion and vicious but melodic vocals. There seem to be equal measures of punk vibes and more mellow reflections thrown in to create a sound not that far from Hell Is For Heroes work; it's vigorous but without being a scream-fest.

A suitable crescendo builds from the vehement vocals and crashing riffs but 'Waco' is hardly unchartered waters, however it offers everything a single needs to charm casual listeners and offers fans something to pin their album hopes on.
