The Fractals are a quartet of seasoned musicians and songwriters with a serious funny bone. I say funny because I love my music full of funny, sarcastic lyrics. And when men sincerely sing things like “Take Your Clothes of Please” I die with laughter. Even more incredible than their fun lyrics is the raw energy that this band plays with. The time sig changes on “Bombs Away” are hypnotic while vocals and vocal arrangement keep you from getting lost in the track…like a lifeline. This album has some of the best songwriting I have ever come across. I would say this band has a mature pop-rock feel to it. Mature in that the arrangements have technique-savvy meat to them. I’m talking expertly seasoned meat cooked to perfection. Heavy Rotation by the Fractals is satisfying in oh so many ways.
