UK trio FANS share title track from debut EP ‘Born Into’
– “FANS absolutely revel in the noise. Drums pound away on a snare-heavy beat, the bass never loses its sixteenth note pace, and the rhythm guitar strums without abandon right up to the beginning of a massive chorus. By the time everything winds down, you’ll be yearning for more.” – The Line of Best Fit
– “Their dark, post-punk driven sound is as sparse as they come, all brooding, chugging bass lines and pounding, relentless drums.” – Clash
– “FANS have some of the most immediate, ready-made fuzzy guitar anthems since The Vaccines.” – NME
Today, dark, brooding indie rock trio FANS are unveiling their second and title track from their fervently anticipated debut EP ‘Born Into’. In addition to this we are delighted to announce that FANS will be heading out on the road this month with dates in both Leeds and London and further Autumn tour dates to be announced shortly.

Commenting on their latest track lead singer Dan Louch said: “We’ve had this song a long time, it was written well over a year ago so it feels good to be getting it out there finally. It’s seems to have grown in relevance since we first wrote it which is weird as some of the lyrics are pretty autobiographical, especially the first two verses. The song idea came about from stories my mum had told me about her childhood, loads of funny Step toe & Son kind of stuff like they didn’t have duvets and used to have to sleep under my granddad’s coat in winter.”
FANS debut EP of the same name and which will follow later this summer was produced and recorded by Eagulls / Hookworms / Pulled Apart By Horses producer Matt Peel. The EP including the track ‘
If God Is Real‘ is a crushing amalgamation of influences, all fusing together to create something both immediately striking and intriguing, yet equally enjoyable and memorable.
Speaking on the premise behind the new EP the band have said “the record is basically based around the idea that social mobility is an illusion, that what circumstances you’re ‘Born Into’, 90% of the time is where you’ll end up. A feeling that people who are poor aren’t valued and have no real control or voice. It is literally becoming a crime to be poor which is fucking mental, and if you happen to be in that situation then it seems like human life ceases to have any value.”
