Introducing: Fast Years
January 17th, 2012 • Introducing
There’s not a huge amount to say about Fast Years at this moment in time, given that they’re yet to appear live in any setting and have just two tracks available online.
What we do know is they’re a garage rock quartet from Brooklyn (another day, another Brooklyn band indeed), and that one of the said songs, “Young Heart” is a mile-a-minute, hook-a-plenty, good time jam that’s got us hot under the collar just now.
It’s essentially the sound of The Mooney Suzuki and The Von Bondies joining each other on stage at a heaving, sweat filled venue circa 2002-2003, say, after a Caesars DJ set in between the bands (where they play Jerk It Out). One hell of an evening, in other words.
Of course, with this genre of Ramones-aping rock being heavily popularised by The Vaccines, and now Howler (who the band are actually supporting for their first ever show, at Brooklyn’s Cameo Gallery, this Friday 20th), we’re guessing that Fast Years will slot right into 2012’s indie rock landscape without anyone so much as batting an eyelid. Which from what we’ve heard so far, can only be a good thing.
