Just Listen: Fours – Painful To Watch


Words: Gary Lambert

foursOpening up with a weird, electro-ish vocal being heavily treated it could have been that this track was going to be painful to listen to. Thankfully, once Edith Violet is allowed the freedom to sing and lead this song, we get taken into a track ideal for the last days of summer. Whilst there is a distinct feel of beers at a beach bar, to the tune, the asymmetrical rhythms and non-routine path her vocal coaxes us along, means that you’re not going to see Fours playing live on the waterfront in Tenerife on morning television any time soon, which is no bad thing! I could listen to this all day long to be honest.
