Free Download: Les Mistons – “Overcoming Fear”

20 Mar

Les Mistons

London based three piece Les Mistons have been around for a little while now and, as far as we can tell, have gathered in some decent acclaim for each of their previous tunes. That trend is set to continue with their latest effort, “Overcoming Fear”.

Clocking in at a smidgen over five minutes long, it crams in so many ideas and influences it’s ridiculous. The three most prominent we can hear are Two Door Cinema Club, Bronski Beat and The Prodigy. No, really. They are all there, and together they sound quite fantastic. It’s little wonder that Amazing Radio’s Chris Martin made it his record of the week.

With “Overcoming Fear” Oliver Budgen (lead vocals/guitars), Joshua Harris (vocals/synths/samples), and Chris Emmerson (vocals/percussion/samples) have crafted something BIG and euphoric and inventive. With more than one tempo change, jet aircraft noise, backing vocal oohhhhhhhhhhh’s that sound a bit like Gregorian chants and a blistering beat underneath it all, the only thing missing is the kitchen sink. No doubt though they would have used that to great effect had it been available during recording.

Catch Les Mistons playing live at The Lexington on 10 April as support for Karin Park.
