Bridezilla – ‘Forth and Fine’
Arguably the most promising young band in the land, Bridezilla made a name for themselves with their serene debut EP which touched upon melancholic PJ Harvey and cinematic Dirty Three and pulled it together into pop form. ‘Forth and Fine’ is the latest single from the Sydney quintet which will be released in January on 10″ vinyl; a split release with The Tren Brothers (Mick Turner and Jim White from The Dirty Three no less).
I saw the ladies – and gentleman – perform ‘Forth and Fine’ as an encore last year at the Annandale Hotel. It was a little loose then, but recorded it comes across as a beautifully paced tune, pushing and pulling with the ebb-and-flow dynamics that Bridezilla are so adept at. They make an atypical combination of guitar, saxophone and violin work so well.
Its release will coincide with Bridezilla’s appearance at the inaugural Australian All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival in January ’09 curated by none other than Mr Nick Cave.
