Trend Fox & The Tenants | A Review of the Mess Around EP

Trend Fox & The Tenants are set to release their debut EP Mess Around on February 22nd courtesy of Kind Turkey Records. The band which definitely draws stylistic influences from the 50s and early 60s, have been working their way through local venues in Milwaukee. You can almost imagine Dick Clark introducing them on American Bandstand, they have that sort of analog sound to them, with their fast pace guitar riffs and great background vocals Trend Fox & The Tenants are a taste of an era gone by. Make no mistake though; this is not a group of Baby-boomers trying to rekindle childhood dreams. The group is full of 20 somethings that bring an energy and excitement to the music they play.  The lead singer can sound like a less raspy and more enthusiastic version of Deer Tick’s John McCauley. Don’t be worried, there is no country influences to shuffle your feet to when Trend Fox & The Tenants are concerned.

The Mess Around EP has a raw and unpolished quality to it that should draw in any garage band aficionados.  You can listen to all five of the tracks from this EP at kindturkeyrecords.com
