In summary, ‘Feel The Fuzz’ generates an enticing beat that makes the listener feel hopeful.
common goldfish made a name for himself on the London gig circuit, performing at everywhere from Peckham Audio to Luna Lounge to The Salisbury, as well as the obligatory busking days along the canals of Hackney Wick. While he has used his own distinctive blend to create a sound with no limits, the artist cites the likes of Stone Roses, Primal Scream and Tame Impala as key influences.
