Brilliant Fanzine – ‘Change For You’
Tinkling piano flanks this Britpop-tinged number from Melbournites Brilliant Fanzine. Totalling a mammoth seven members means ‘Change For You’ is garnered with a lush instrumental bed which Matt O’Neill’s creamy, harmonised vocals can lay on. They try and mix some difficult elements, like pop and hallucinogenic noise breakdowns, but somehow it works in the heat of the moment. Around the 2 minute mark, the electric guitars and synths go spastic while the acoustic guitar strums along oblivious to the chaos. It’s Elastica, Blur and Bends–era Radiohead sandwiched together. Rather tasty too.
