Just Listen: The Calm Fiasco – Just Don’t Care Anymore

The Calm Fiasco

Words: Gary Feeney

the-calm-fiasco-the-fear-600x250The Calm Fiasco is a name which I’ve saw loads of times online and in and around their native Glasgow recently, so since I’d never got round to checking them out, it was a welcome surprise when their new single, Just Don’t Care Anymore, landed in my inbox.

The first track from their forthcoming The Fear E.P, Just Don’t Care Anymore opens with a fuzzy bluesy riff which gives way to a solitary guitar stabbing repeating a variation of the same chords before Del Morin’s vocal kicks in. The different guitar sounds both contrast and compliment each other throughout, adding depth to a song which is both stylish and powerful, pairing musical intricacy with heavy riffs and big choruses.

Perhaps, though, the best way to describe Just Don’t Care Anymore would be to say that it’s a quintessentially Glaswegian rock’n’roll number, with hints of contemporaries such as Raising Kain and Franz Ferdinand along with more current acts like Tijuana Bibles and White audible – it’s a sound which the city’s band have honed to perfection over the last decade, and The Calm Fiasco have proven themselves to be fine purveyors of it with this single.
