Post-punk group Fang Island are a bunch of teases. Having recently announced their new album, Major, the only sample the group has given fans, is a couple teaser videos featuring only a few seconds of album-opener “Kindergarten” and “Seek It Out.” Although short they sounds great; known for the guitar-driven hooks and melodies, Fang Island’s goal for Major is to give the fans what they want–memorable hooks.
“We wanted to be the band that’s nothing but your favorite hooks back to back,” explains guitarist and vocalist Jason Bartell. This definitely seems to be the case for Major; as soon as the teaser video begins the group is bombarding you sweltering piano that segues into arena-rock sized guitars, a Fang Island trademark.
Major, the follow-up to the group’s 2010 self-titled debut, is scheduled to release on July 24. Until then, keep these teaser videos on repeat, and prepare yourselves for a summer filled with Fang Island.
