"...sounds like something you might’ve heard out of the Pacific Northwest 20-30 years ago, like Nirvana having a Sonic Youth fever dream."
"FF here exudes all those feelings one receives upon sentimentally bound reflections that give rise to mix emotions, while their vocal harmonies find the blend of the perfect company as the catchy string chords bend to the whim of every great feeling you hope that tomorrow might bring."

FF is comprised of Seattle-based trio Claire Nelson, Harley Thompson, Michael Abeyta and Andrew McKibben. Out October 21st on Seattle’s Couple Skate Records, the album is a collection of gloomy, ethereal punk anthems, owing much of their inspiration to the fertile enclave that is the Northwest DIY underground. Likewise, sources such as My Bloody Valentine, The Wipers, Sonic Youth and the Flying Nun Records cabal, forged the path which Lord follows. But where many of their contemporaries fall prey to a suffocating box of 90s revivalism, FF breakout from this, and offer a profound alternative to the overwhelming culture of nostalgia.
