The Calm Fiasco

"Sharp-edged guitar riffery collides with anthemic songwriting, with just a slight hint of something darker". - Clash Music
Glaswegian four-piece indie rock band The Calm Fiasco takes inspiration from the angular, fuzzy riffs made famous by the likes of Television, and later The Strokes, allied to the contemporary indie-pop hooks of Two Door Cinema Club and Phoenix. Their new EP 'The Fear' is an impressive accomplishment achieved by a band who’s sound continues to progress with each and every release. This is apparent on tracks such as forthcoming single Sorry I’m Late Again and ‘Soursucker’; two tracks that wouldn’t sound out of place rocking the main stage of any summer festival.
The Fear finds the band in scintillating form as they aim to build upon the success of their 2016 single Lose Control, picking up support from the likes Clash Magazine. Managing to convey an in-your-face attitude while producing memorable hooks and choruses, The Calm Fiasco have managed to create a record without losing the essence of an authentically raw, live performance.
