Fatwood by T. G. Shand

Darkenin Heart

The newest single from New Zealand dreampop artist T. G. Shand, Fatwood, is based on a solid beat, and sounds lighthearted, composed of jangly guitar and airy vocals. The song was written over a few weeks at the beginning of New Zealand summer, and began as a joke track before it evolved into a cunning piece that harnessed its possibility, set up on a fire starter a friend made her.

T. G. Shand aka Annemarie Duff explains: "I was trying to work on the EP tracks, but had this beat in my head after a very happy weekend. Had some pretty lame lyrics I was humming over it, and then my friend made me a fire starter(!). And there were all these words like 'FATWOOD' and 'firesteel' and 'ferro rod'. At some point summer got a bit weird, and I got ragey enough to finish that outtro through gritted teeth. So it just became this angry play on fire starter words... lol. It's a bit chaotic but hey I think it suits it, and I'm quite proud of the beat."

Fatwood alternates nicely between psychedelia, dreampop and lo-fi pop sounds, and it's another resolute reveal from T. G. Shand.
