Singer-songwriter Scott Fab’s introduction to music came from Detroit punk. As a member of the hardcore band GCMS he was part of the same scene that spawned the legendary pioneers of the genre, Negative Approach.
Having drifted away from music in the early 2000s, Fab started performing again in 2013 and soon afterwards began working on a new batch of songs. He now returns with the resulting album, the slow-burning and reflective Leave My Friends. His arrestingly scuffed-up vocals are the sound of Midwest desolation laid bare over the bones of an acoustic guitar and chronicle the complex nature of relationships and loss that haunt us all as we travel through life – a permanent reminder that our existence isn’t guaranteed to be long.
Fans of Houndmouth or Ryan Adams are pretty sure to find much to like here – listen to the title track of the album below, which is due out on 14th April.
