It’s a more fizzy, bubbling offer from the Leeds based quintet FEHM, but their latest track ‘Scarborough Warning‘ is something refreshing. The track constantly evolves building upon itself whilst still feeling quite stark, but in a good way. Its chorus is demanding with the synths taking on a sweeping, but more powerful turn taking the track over completely. ‘Scarborough Warning’ is also rather concise as even after a few listens, I’ve only just noticed that it actually passes the 5 minute mark whilst feeling like it’s only about 2 minutes 30.
Speaking of the track, frontman Paul Riddle has said: “‘Scarborough Warning’ is fundamentally about asking questions on why we can’t all stand together regardless of sex, race or religion. It jumps between first, second and third person perspectives, from my own thought process to that of other peoples.”
