Following up their enjoyable and successful debut album Your Wisest Choice and Your Worst One Yet and its two singles Bad Decision and L.O.V., UK alternative rock band Fight The Dice return with brand new song/single Oh Me, Oh My to confirm the promise and appeal already set in motion by the Shropshire based quintet. Accomplished and quietly infectious whilst being wholly persuasive, the track leaves the appetite tantalised and eager for more, making it the perfect confirmation for those aware of the group and introduction for newcomers.
Formed in 2011, the five piece consisting of vocalist Ben Jackson, guitarists Jack Turner and Tom Worrall, bassist Sam Jackson, and drummer Phil Beauchamp has built a strong presence for themselves through not only the mentioned releases but their live performances which has led them to venues such as O2 Academy 2 and the NEC Birmingham, The Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton, Bedford Corn Exchange, Bristol O2 Academy main stage and booked shows at the likes of the O2 Academy Islington and the Cavern Liverpool. Their sound finds inspiration in the likes of All Time Low, Avenged Sevenfold, and Blink-182 but defines its own breath and persuasion through well-crafted and shapely slices of unfussy rock, of which the new single is a richly pleasing example.
Oh Me, Oh My opens with inviting rhythms from Beauchamp aligned to respectful but hungry riffs and melodic grooves laid down by the guitars. It is an instantly calling start which embraces the vocals of Jackson which from a slightly weak start set down a strong and expressive stance for the band to fill the air around with melodic colour and open passion. The song does not have the infectiousness of their first single it is fair to say but instead shows the expanse of the songwriting and evolution in sound of the band since that initial emergence from the shadows.
The single nevertheless lures in ears and thoughts to secure their appetite whilst the subsequent washes of keys entice extra hunger for its additional caresses within the inventive passion fuelled evocation. Oh Me, Oh My is a pleasing and skilful piece of rock that only goes to reinforce the rising opinion and success of Fight The Dice.
