Brave Men Can't Party
Cognitive Dissonance Records
Fun. That’s the first thing that comes to mind when listening to Manchester’s Tribal Fighters.
These self-proclaimed purveyors of twiddly Babe Pop are blessed with the natural exuberance of youth but in contrast to so many other bands it is the exuberance, rather than the youth, that is immediately apparent in their music. Their debut EP is an immaculately-crafted body of work in which intricate melodies are carefully hung over a backdrop of funky rhythms, creating a foot-tapping, head-nodding whole that is utterly irresistible.
‘Brave Men Can’t Party’ weighs in at a hefty forty minutes and combines 5 tracks of what can only really be described as ‘math pop’ with three striking remixes from Vei, Borland and fellow Cognitive Dissonance label mates The Narrows.
Cognitive Dissonance Records aims to uncover the most interesting, beautiful and extraordinary things happening in new music. We focus on bands who we truly believe are doing something different and whose music makes us want to leave them on repeat for all time.
