2 stars A couple of nice songs!

This is a single taken from The Fierce and The Dead debut album entitled "If it Carries on Like this, We Are Moving to Morecambe" released in this 2011 some months ago. Here we have the title track "10x10" and a bonus one (not included in the studio album) entitled "Foreign Languages", both short songs that together make a seven-minute single. Once again, this can be downloaded via Bandcamp as a pay what you want download, so take advantage of this and listen to it. When you do it, I believe you will be interested in the band and will want to listen to their EP and studio album.

So "10x10" has a wonderful texture. I love how it progresses while the seconds pass, how more elements are being added, and how the repetition of rhythms creates a true interaction between music and person. It is a well composed and elaborated track that will appeal to fans of post-rock in general. The last minute is emotional and particularly good.

"Foreign Languages" has a more electronic-oriented sound which still follows the same path, though it sounds a bit different from other band's compositions. It starts with distorted bass for almost a minute, then drums join and some atmospheric background is added. Later guitars appear and some Nintendo-like sounds can be heard. This is an odd, but cool track after all.

I have nothing more to say than invite you to listen to this band, they are talented and promising, so surely we will have news from them for a long time. My final grade for this single is two stars, and you know, not because I don't like it, but because a single is mainly just for fans.

Enjoy it!
