Loose Fit - Loose Fit
Today, Sydney AUS quartet Loose Fit are sharing their debut single "Pull The Lever." Taken from the forthcoming self-titled EP, set for release through FatCat Records on April 3, "Pull The Lever" wastes no time in marking the band's intent. A purposeful, broad-shouldered, looping bass motif is set front-and-centre against wiry guitar chuntering and scatter-gun percussion. Lead singer Anna Langdon marries charismatic, pitch-black vocals to lyrics that mix oblique imagery with emotionally powerful subject matter.
It starkly paints life as an endless series of risky gambles, Langdon nonchalantly commanding, “Pull the lever, try your luck again, colours spinning, wind them up again, it’s time to start again."
Of the lyrics, Landon explains, "Apps on our phones are designed like slot machines. It's addictive and exciting to play a dating app. Refreshing or swiping is like pulling the lever of a slot machine to see what you got. That design is no accident in an attention economy."
On the the creation of the track, the band say, "Pull The Lever was probably the first song we wrote where we felt we had kinda cracked open the 'Loose Fit sound' and found out what it was. We were trying to toe the line between moodiness and danceability."
