fanclubwallet – You Have Got To Be Kidding Me

A charming embrace that feels familiar.

Label: AWAL
Released: 20th May 2022

In a world that’s shouting ever louder, sometimes it’s nice to take a break and find a bit of quiet, particularly in the kind of place that feels like a daydream.

Soaking in a warm bath surrounded by genteel noises that flit between Gameboy and 00s twee, newcomer Han Judge, the brainchild behind fanclubwallet’s twinkling, lo-fi sounds, has finally found a way to get the words off her chest. With a charming embrace that feels familiar, much like the feelings Han offers up through her soft, breathless wisps, comes a heart of gold, and a wit to match.

At twelve tracks it feels like it lopes on a little bit too long given the steady tempo and light touch, but when things are already a bit manic everywhere else, there’s nothing wrong with soaking in the sun for a bit longer than needs be.
