The track was released via UK independent label XVII Music earlier this month.
Settle Down was recorded by multifaceted producer Dan Austin (Doves, SLØTFACE, Mallory Knox, Young Legionnaire) at Eve Studios, Stockport / Real World, Bath. ‘Settle Down’ showcases the band’s ability to grasp your attention with their infectious and anthemic hooks. Married with psychedelic brit-rock and whispers of the desert, awash with waves of echo, and spring reverb that will lull you into a dreamy haze, before the chorus takes hold, and grabs you firmly by the eardrums.
Formed of three friends studying at university, the inception of Fine Creatures took place through sharing a student house and a love of ‘60’s pop and ‘90s alt-rock. With the later addition of Malte Henning on guitar, the Brighton four-piece were complete – and things really started to pick up.
“When we first started, I always said that I wanted to be ‘the dirty Beatles’,” laughs Fine Creatures frontman, James Hall. “That’s a good way to describe us.”
It’s that rough and ready blueprint of pop, grunge, and psychedelia where melody meets menace that makes Fine Creatures such a bright shining hope. They make inescapable earworms, but with a nasty bite.
