Catfish & The Bottlemen - Fallout (Island/Communion) 
Catfish & The Bottlemen - Fallout

Release Date: 7th July 2014

It's all a numbers game for Catfish & The Bottlemen now. They've played hundreds of gigs over the past 12 month in front of thousands of fans. They've got two support slots coming up with the crown prince of indie, Jake Bugg, and they're just about to release their fifth single in a year. All this points towards the potential for a number 1 album in September but for now let's concentrate on this last 7" before they head out for the festival season. 'Fallout' was called the hottest record in the world by Zane Low back in May and there's no doubting that there is an epic, stadium sized feel to the song as it builds the layers of shimmying cymbals and snarling guitars with a distinct 80s indie feel. However, I would dare to say that this is the least immediate or infectious of the five singles and this will be where the album thrives or fails - can the quartet maintain the early momentum or is it going to be five singles we've all heard plus five filler tracks. Only time will tell...
