Rapidly burning their way up ‘ones to watch’ lists, Newcastle outfit EAT FAST have shared a brand new track, and with it the announcement of their first physical release.
Having carved out a niche for themselves with their blistering punk jams, with their latest offering EAT FAST are showing no signs of slowing. Characteristically rambunctious, “Sand Drone” is an adrenalin fuelled venture given form with razor sharp wit and scaling ferocity.
“Many of my friends moved to London because the North East was so restrictive,” Adam Pearson told DIY of the track’s influences. “Not in a provincial protest, but I began to consider locality, and its weight(lessness) as a cornerstone of identity. But beyond that, just seeing all these smart, creative people my age being brickwalled and stifled while we picked up the bill of the last generation saddened me. So it’s a bit about that.”
“And about how those people around me who felt like their growth had been stunted reacted to that,” he adds, “while the accusation floated round of young people being lazy or out of touch with the economic reality of our times. Any social commentary aside… the subjective in the song acknowledges that none of it matters if you are happy with someone, or surrounded by people, you love.”
Currently applying the finishing touches to their second album – with an EP and an LP worth of material already primed for release this year – Eat Fast are making the most of every moment as they propel themselves to the top.
