Following on from a great set at 2010’s T In The Park and February single Iron Deer Dream, Oxford band Fixers are gearing up to release new track Crystals. The band have been described as "A gorgeous summer salad of west coast psychedelia”, which gives as good a representation as any of the band’s sunny cocktail of fizzy, energy-injected guitar pop.
Crystals launches itself off a bouncy, rubbery bassline and trippy 60s influences to surface sounding like the distant cousin to The Phoenix Foundation. It’s a more considered, gentle beast than Iron Deer Dream and has some lovely, delicate keyboard melodies bubbling away in the background. Recently receiving Radio 1 airplay from Huw Stephens and Vic Galloway, the band’s T In The Park performances are available to watch online here.
