Irish five-piece Fizzy Orange have released a new single ‘Oh Carling!’.
Recorded in January at Sonic Studios, Dublin, the track was produced by Dan Fox (Gilla Band) and mixed and mastered by Karl Barnes.
Speaking about the track, the band say: “‘Oh Carling!’ came about after a week-long recording session in County Leitrim in Ireland last May. We had originally set out to do a whole EP on an old Tascam four track we had. We got about eight tracks down during that session. They all sounded crap but in the coolest way possible…
“Being in the middle of nowhere, we stocked up on cans before the trip there. Carling was on offer down the supermarket, questionable lager at best but we bought about 100 cans of it to keep us going for the week. Hence the title! They lasted about a day and we didn’t even get our poxy promotional gold can. Tut Tut Carling marketing team.
“Anyway this song is basically our effort at one of those mid 2000’s pop rock tunes. Didn’t really turn out that way… At the time we were listening to lots of XTC, R. Stevie Moore, Beach Boys’ ‘smiley smile’ album and a few other more home production sort of bits, we were happy with how it turned out, short, sweet and to the point.”
All those things, with a sprinkle of early magic that you’d not put past The Cribs, you can check out ‘Oh Carling!’ below.
