Major - SARGENT HOUSE
FILTER Grade: 76%

The tones are beefy and the drums like bursts of rain on Fang Island’s Major, a rollicking bunch of speedy, punchy, pop-metal anthems. Unfortunately, many of the singalong melodies seem simplistic and hand-me-down, and true variety seems to escape the band until the final cluster of songs, which ignite a fun, white-hot emotional dynamism and a powerful imaginative sense. Fang Island seems like a kickass live band, but sound somewhat scattered on headphones.
